Families and local civic groups help to clean and beautify Frederiksted.
The action on the parade route in Frederiksted for Martin Luther King Jr. Day started long before the parade. Residents representing themselves and several local civic groups and churches were out in full force at 7:30 a.m. for Operation Clean Sweep Frederiksted, marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
Around 50 volunteers spread out on both sides of the whole length of King Street shoveling dirt and debris from ditches, pulling weeds, sweeping walks and picking up trash.
