Volunteers from the First United Presbyterian Church in Belleville gave up their Saturday to clean up trash and debris from both sides of Illinois Route 161. About ten members of the Mission Committe grouped into pairs and set about cleaning the road shoulder from Sullivan Drive to Frank Scott Parkway.
