About 50 teenagers attending the Assembly of God’s National Youth Convention in Louisville will be in Taylorsville next week to help with Operation City Cleanup.
City Commissioner Beverly Ingram said Monday that Chad Goodlett, pastor of the First Assembly of God Church in Taylorsville, was instrumental in getting 50 of the youth from the convention into the Taylorsville area next Wednesday, Aug. 8, and Friday, Aug. 10.
The group will be in town from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday.
The youths visiting Taylorsville will primarily be from Wisconsin and other parts of Kentucky, Ingram said.
Over 10,000 teenagers will be in Louisville to participate in the convention, along with the Fine Arts Festival and AIM Outreach.
The group will help pick up trash in the city and will also go door-to-door to volunteer to help residents with outdoor projects.
During the time the youths are in town, a Dumpster will be provided behind the Chamber of Commerce building to dispose of trash, Ingram said, adding that Taylorsville residents are welcome to use it as well to help clean up the city.
