Give a Christmas Gift to our Community! Take part in a CLEANUP OF THE DARIEN WATERFRONT December 13, 10 a.m. – 12 noon, organized by Dawn Jex of Coastal Yoga and Massage and Keep McIntosh Beautiful.

We’ll meet at the Waterfront Park and go from there.  Bring a kayak or canoe if you want to clean up from the river side, and we will also be picking up from the shore/dockside. KMB has a couple of brand new 8′ long trash grabbers we can’t wait to try out to get in those hard to reach or far down places…We’ll have about 25 other regular trash grabbers as well, but bring your own grabber if you have one. KMB will also supply trash bags, gloves for those who need them, along with water and snacks.  

 If you can, let us know you’re coming for planning purposes, but come at the last minute if that’s how it works out!   If you’re on Facebook, you can add your name at the EVENT at either the KMB or Coastal Yoga & Massage pages or just See you at the Waterfront!

You also just drop an email to keepmcintoshbeautiful@gmail.com to let us know you are coming.

THANK YOU! to all our members, Adopt-A-Highway and other volunteers who came out for KMB’s ANNUAL MEETING & APPRECIATION COOKOUT last Thursday at Ashantilly Center. Despite the rainy weather that sent us inside, we had good food, good conversations and a productive meeting, with some thoughtful ideas and possible new activities suggested. A big thanks, too, to the KMB Board who setup, grilled, cooked and do so much for our organization all year long. Here’s to a great year ahead!

It’s the mission of KMB to engage residents, businesses and organizations in working together for a clean, green environment that enhances economic activity and helps make Darien and McIntosh County a great place to live, work, play and visit.  And together, we are making a difference!

Community involvement and support are what make possible Adopt-A-Highway, land and water cleanups, beautification projects, recycling and waste reduction events, our award-winning Abandoned Buildings Program and other activities.

KMB was named Non-Profit of the Year for 2017 by the Darien-McIntosh Chamber of Commerce.
