The April Beautification/Clean-Up Day is coming up this Saturday, April 12. They will be doing all day clean up again in and around Matewan. Town members secured bags, vest and clean up materials through the DOH Pride program last month. They had a great clean up day then and are expecting to have another good one on Saturday.
The Matewan Community Meeting is Thursday April 24 from 6-8:30pm. We have challenged them to have 100 people there. Right now it is planned to be at the UMWA hall in downtown Matewan.
Finally, in the past month they have opened a new community center right outside of town and have applied for an Adopt-A-Highway program for Rt 49.
