Seventy degrees and sunshine make it a perfect day for airmen from grand forks air force base to help clean up the Greenway.

Armed with garbage bags and gloves members of the 319th Contractors Squadron headed out of doors to do just that.

The group assisted the city of Grand Forks by cleaning up trash on a portion of the Greenway.

They say it is their way to give back to a community that gives so much to them.

"It is just something that is very humbling. It just feels good to know that the city that you live in..you have to take pride in it even if you are not originally from here," Says Staff Seargant Kim Pavelum, 319TH Contracting Squadron.

Today was the first day they will be helping to clean-up. The squadron is hoping to make it an on-going project with the city.
