Electric cooperatives across our state joined the annual volunteer movement in honor of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. SRE employees participated in three days of service across three of our service counties.
The first day, employees spent the morning in Greene County giving the Jackie Leverette Memorial Tennis Court area a much-needed facelift where they painted benches, bleachers, and the court’s scoreboard. Day two was spent in George County cleaning the Wilkerson Ferry West Boat Launch. The morning included picking up limbs and trash, scrubbing the picnic areas water source, as well as mowing and weed eating. On day three, the official Martin Luther King holiday, employees spent the day in Jackson County bush hogging, weed eating, and picking up trash at the Bennett Bayou Preserve. The five-acre preserve was the original location of the Pascagoula River Audubon Center.
