Palmers’ yard in Crescent earns March

Keep McIntosh Beautiful Green Thumb Award


When it comes to the yard at Maggie and Leotis Palmer’s home on Hwy 99 in Crescent, “it’s all his” says Mrs. Palmer.  And “his” yard is obviously Mr. Palmer’s pride and joy.   No matter what time of year, the yard is always meticulously maintained, clean, neat, the shrubs pruned and mulched just so, and the grass never too long or too short.   For its consistent attractiveness and the dedicated care and pride it reflects, the Palmers’ yard earns the March 2017 Keep McIntosh Beautiful Green Thumb Award.

CONGRATULATIONS to you, Mr. and Mrs. Palmer, and thank you for your contribution to a clean, green and beautiful McIntosh County.


The KMB Green Thumb Award is presented to a different business, residence or institution each month, “for going above and beyond in keeping their outside premises clean and attractive” and their contribution to a clean, green and beautiful McIntosh County.  Nominations from the community are welcomed.

Great Job Adopt-A-Highway Volunteers!

Thanks to all our Adopt-A-Highway volunteers who have been out in force this spring helping keep our roadsides clean and beautiful.

Since January, 98 AAH volunteers have picked up 3,640 lbs. of trash, 2 ceiling fans and a TV along McIntosh County roads.

This doesn’t count the extra support with litter pickup in recent months from the McIntosh County Sheriff’s office who has had a detail regularly picking up on Blount Crossing, Hwy 99 and Hwy 17. Thank you Sheriff Steve Jessup!  We are also grateful to Peach State Services in Hinesville for bringing community service workers for Saturday pickups since February.
