LAHARPE — A hearty group of 48 volunteers, ranging from college students to residents in their 70s, flooded LaHarpe with trucks, trailers, shovels and rakes Saturday, to help clean up debris and brush from 19 local yards.

The cleanup day effort was a collaboration between LaHarpe PRIDE, Thrive Allen County and the Kansas Health Foundation.

The impetus was a grant Thrive received from the Health Foundation to fund resident-led projects in LaHarpe.
