On Saturday, April 24, hundreds of volunteers fanned out throughout the entirety of Burien, including the newly-annexed “North Burien” area, wearing bright orange vests and gloves, carrying rakes, brooms, large plastic bags as well as a determination to try to help clean the city up in the annual “Clean Sweep.”

Local dignitaries were on hand, including Mayor Joan McGilton, City Councilmember Lucy Karkowiak, along with folks like Greg Duff, Ray Helms and many other volunteers from our new neighborhoods.

Also on hand was Scott Schaefer, who took photos and turned them into the following “Sound Slideshow” – make sure your speakers are on, as this multimedia presentation includes audio excerpted from a 1966 University of Illinois public domain film on janitorial work called “Color It Clean“:

    I was proud to be able to participate in Burien’s Clean Sweep. So many fine citizens turned out to clean up our town. I worked with Councilperson Krakowiak at the recyling center and we had a great time. The streets of Burien shine tonight because of the people who worked hard today taking pride in the city they live.
    A big hand to all those who volunteered and a debt of gratitude to those who put on this fine event. The event was well organized. The breakfast, lunch and snacks were great and the event came off without a hitch.
    I invite even more citizens to participate next year. Besides having a great time, you might just make some new friends like I did today.
    Thank you

    I saw some of you guys walking around this morning doing your thing! I was off to another event so couldn’t join in this year. I hope to get my family in it next year. Good job all. The streets do look great.
