KYB installs new benches
By Anna Noel
The city of Yorktown, through Keep Yorktown Beautiful, has recently received new benches along Main Street. Keep Yorktown Beautiful, or KYB, has been cleaning and improving Yorktown since they started in 2014.
“We started out wanting to just beautify Yorktown,” KYB president Donna Roeder stated. “There was a bunch of people that just got together and decided that this was something that was our goal. We noticed that our playground equipment was old and was needing to be maybe spruced up or fixed, so we started with the park. So we took that on and wanted to let families be families. The park is a place we wanted families to be able to go and stay here and enjoy each other. We’ve adopted a lot of flower beds and worked on them, then we decided to help spruce up downtown because we thought it would help businesses. We’ve been blessed with gifts from a lot of different gifts from a lot of individuals.”
