Calling all businesses, clubs, organizations and individuals!! The Durant Area Chamber of Commerce announces the city-wide Keep Durant Clean & Green event in conjunction with Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, OG&E Energy Corp. and Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup scheduled for April 21 has been rescheduled to May 19 due to weather concerns. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. at Market Square, located at 1st and Evergreen in Durant on May 19, 2018.
Businesses, organizations, clubs and individuals are invited to help clean up Durant on May 19 as a part of the Keep Durant Clean & Green initiative. Check-in is from 9:00 – 9:30 a.m. and at this time, participants can pick up supplies and select a location to clean up. Trash pick-up will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the event will reconvene at 11:30 a.m. at Market Square where First United Bank will provide hot dogs to participants and prizes will be awarded in various categories including the largest group participation and more.
