The City of Shelby is very grateful to all those who give tirelessly to our community in picking up garbage, cleaning tree lines and public areas and planting and maintaining the concrete planters along Roosevelt Highway and Oilfield Avenue, as well as the flower baskets that line our Main Street and business district.
In 2017, we started the Shelby Citizen Volunteer Corp. Wonderful community members spent several evenings cleaning parks, painting the “Welcome to Shelby” signs and completing beautification projects. We hope to utilize a volunteer group this spring in completing cleanup projects. The City welcomes anyone who might like to help in weeding the concrete planters that line Roosevelt Highway and Oilfield Avenue in anticipation of planting. We are also looking for volunteers to plant and care for several planters, which need a “green thumb!” If you would like to share a little of your time, please email Lorette Carter at shbcdc@3rivers. net, or call her at Shelby City Hall, 434-5222. The cleanup night is planned for Thursday, May 16, beginning at 6 p.m., at the north end of the viaduct.
If you have perennials or plants you might like to share, please let Lorette know as well.
