PARIS, Texas — Keep Paris Beautiful, the City of Paris, and the United Way of Lamar County are partnering on a “Fall Sweep” on Saturday, November 4, from 8:00 am until 11:00 am. The Credit Union of Texas provides breakfast at the Oak Park pavilion in west Paris.
Needed are volunteers to mow, rake, bag leaves, move small brush, and sweep driveways and sidewalks. Julia Trigg Crawford, Executive Director of Keep Paris Beautiful, explains, “Partnerships are key to positive change. Keep Paris Beautiful is proud to link arms with many great organizations for this Fall Sweep. Whether you’re a business, church, school, or professional organization, we hope you’ll become volunteers to make this Fall Sweep another successful community event.”
City of Paris Mayor Pro Tem Mihir Pankaj adds, “The City of Paris is excited to partner with the United Way, Keep Paris Beautiful, and Credit Union of Texas to put on Fall Sweep. This event is a wonderful extension of the Town Halls we’re having in West Paris to better connect with our citizens. We invite all homeowners in the target neighborhoods to register for this free service. I plan to be part of the volunteer crew and look forward to helping on November 4.”
This year’s Fall Sweep Neighborhood is West Kaufman, West Austin, and West Sherman streets between the 19th and 25th. To register your home for this free service, call the United Way of Lamar County at 903-784-6642 before November 2.

All volunteers will receive a free T-shirt to wear at the Fall Sweep.
