Thirty nine young men picked up trash at Paces Mill. One group headed up the
Rottenwood Creek Trail. The other group cleaned the parking lots, and picnic area. The students shoveled mounds of discarded ashes surrounding the grills into trash bags leaving the picnic area ready for the summer season.

The high school students are members of the Kings of Distinction Mentoring Program at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School, St. Louis. The group is visiting Atlanta historical sites, meeting with community leaders and mentoring groups, and touring colleges. Paces Mill was chosen as their community service project.
