Keesler and "Hands On" Clean up of
MLK Parade Route
From: Keesler Public Affairs   GCN  Filed 1/10/06

Keesler will assist “Hands On” in the cleanup of the Martin Luther King Jr. parade route through East Biloxi starting 8:30 a.m. Friday. Team Keesler, in conjunction with “Hands On”, will ensure the parade route is free of debris for a more enjoyable, safe parade atmosphere. Keesler’s goal is to have at least 150 members available to assist in the effort.  


Base perimeter fence replacement

Keesler’s base perimeter fence along Rodeo Road, Forrest Avenue, Hollywood Blvd, Iberville Drive, Judge Sekul, Lafayette Street, Meadows Drive, Oaklawn Place and Tuxedo Avenue will be replaced January through July.

In preparation, the 81st Civil Engineer Squadron will trim all tree limbs touching and/or protruding through or over the perimeter fence.  Workers will make every effort to remain on the government side of the fence.


Residents are asked not to place any loose items within five feet of the existing fence. Any plants growing along the fence line or vines growing on the fence should be relocated to avoid destruction.  Residents are encouraged to restrain all pets for their safety as well as the workers.
