DOWNTOWN TRASH GETS TRASHED

Some 50 downtown advocates braved chilly overcast skies Saturday morning (April 25, 2015) to fill large bags with trash littering Kinston’s center city.

It marked the 12th time that Pride of Kinston has hosted a downtown clean up day. This year the Pride earned the support of a large delegation of Kinston Teens, led by its organizer Chris Suggs.

Other notables included Kinston Mayor Pro Tem Joe Tyson, Lenoir County Commissioner Roland Best, City Councilman Sammy Aiken and attorneys Stuart Stroud and Amelda Pate. Early College leader Nick Harvey III, a number of Omega Psi Phi fraternity members, Boys and Girls Club members, and high schoolers from Kinston High, South Lenoir and North Lenoir pitched up to scour downtown streets and sidewalks.

As noon rolled around, volunteers were treated to barbecue pork and chicken, beans, slaw, hush puppies and banana pudding. Just as the last meals were served, the predicted rain drops began to fall.


Vision

"The vision of Pride of Kinston, Inc. is a downtown on the banks of the Neuse River that serves as the gateway to Eastern North Carolina. Our appreciation of history guides our future and promotes the magic to grow business, recreation, and the arts."
