"We are extremely grateful to all our volunteers for their work, especially since they had lo brave the elements to do so!" remarked Dr. William Awe, Clean Sweep chairman. "Huntiians care about their village and we won't let visitors or neighbors trash it. A lot of our volunteers are children, it is wonderful to see them get involved with such a noble cause.
