Many city, suburban and rural residents band together to clean up their neighborhoods each year but receive little or no recognition.
Do you know of any people or groups doing extraordinary work to get beyond the blight?
If so, tell us their stories so we can relay them to Vindicator readers. We'll select the top stories and periodically profile those who are going beyond the norm to improve how our area looks.
