Bring the kids out and help them develop a sense of commnnity pride, too. You might want to pick a family project, such as going to a park or picking a street and cleaning up the trash. "Through everyone's efforts, Superior has disposed of approximately 750,000 pounds of trash in the past four years," Anderson said. "This is an incredible feat and we all should feel very proud. If you look around you can sure see the differ- ence. We are really shining!" She said that in order to accomplish this annual clean-up effort at least 100 vol- unteers are needed. "Please come to the Caboose Park at 7 a.m. on April 3 and be one of the team," she said. "If you have a trucl or trailer please bring it along. Bring your gloves, pitch in and feel the pride."
