Volunteer crews fanned out around the city on a cool Saturday morning for the April 16 “Clean Up Day in Darlington.” Activities included litter collection, planting new flowers and shrubs, mulching and pine straw bedding in sites like Liberty Lane, Williamson Park, and Wells Park.

Organized and sponsored by The Kalmia Garden Study Club and the City of Darlington and funded in part by a grant from Palmetto Pride, the clean up crews used supplies and received promotional help from local vendors like Darlington Seed and Feed, Palmetto Hardware, Carolina Hardware, Main Street Jewelers, and Sweet Jane’s Cafe and Wine Bar.
