COAL CREEK 
SCRAPE, PAINT AND CLEAN DAY
October 28, 2000

It started out as a chilly, foggy October morning in the mountains of Coal Creek, Tennessee, but the sun shown through by the time 50 volunteers had made a big dent in scraping old paint off the Briceville Community Church to prepare it as Item "M" of the historic landmarks on our Coal Creek Motor Discovery Trail.  Gutters were cleaned and leaves were swept.  

Some of the volunteers took on the Tennessee Hollow site to remove trash and debris that has been dumped in the woods.  A "mountain" of trash was transported down to Blue Hole.  

By lunch time, everyone had worked up an appetite, which was a good thing, because the local church ladies cooked up some good food.  Thanks to all the volunteers for their great effort.  

Check out the photos to see all the action:
