Members of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity are doing their part to help keep Natchitoches beautiful. On March 2, 2008, the Fraternity held their regular “Trash Bash” to help beautify the city before next weekend’s “Bloomin on the Bricks” celebration.
Members walked over a mile, clearing trash and debris from the roadside. In 2006, the chapter adopted University Parkway, the main thoroughfare leading into to Natchitoches.
The Fraternity chose the street because of its high visibility to residents and tourists. “It’s the first thing people see when coming into to Natchitoches,” Pi Kappa Phi brother Collin McKnight said. “It’s such a beautiful area, so we take pride in our community.”
The roadside is cleaned at least four times each year.
