Members of the Oelwein Police Department and the Oelwein Wrestling Club continue their efforts to help clean up and beautify the community. This past weekend, members took time to trim trees along Highway 150 near Fareway. The trees, which are in the public right of way in the 200 and 300 block, had become overgrown and in need of care.
"The intent of both of our groups is to show how if anyone spends a little time here and a little time there, a lot can be accomplished to help others and to help your community" advised Chief Jeremy Logan. "This initiative, "One", shows that One Action - One Effort - One Gesture - One Community - One Team - One Person can make a difference."
