Clean Up Day a Huge Success

We received the following report from the Dycusburg Community Group's president, Michelle Henderson:

The clean up day at Dycusburg was a huge success. At the beginning of the day, volunteers from all over the area were in town to help load up the dump truck that was generously donated through the offices of Crittenden County Judge Executive Fred Brown with the assistance of Magistrate Greg West.

The dump truck was completely full by the end of the day after locals brought down their rubbish items. It's the beginning of what the Dycusburg Community Group (DCG) hopes is a twice-yearly effort (look for another clean up day in September in advance of October's Dycusburg Day Festival).

Please stay tuned to this site for upcoming events. The DCG is actively working on many future projects (a summer BBQ, a community cookbook, a souvenir historical keepsake book, a tree and flower-planting day ... to name a few), and we hope you will be involved. (E-mail us at for volunteer opportunities).

Change for the better at Dycusburg is in the air! We strongly feel that today's event was the beginning of some great things in our wonderful Cumberland River village. We extend a heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who volunteered their time, energy and love today. Dycusburg is a small town with a big heart.
