IRONWOOD - Ironwood's bag men and ladies hit the streets on a sun-filled Saturday morning.
They collected any garbage they could find during the annual Make a Difference Day.
"We have a small, but dedicated crew out here today," said city manager Scott Erickson, as he handed out garbage bags and gloves to the volunteers from the Depot.
A slight breeze held off the booming mosquito population.
Jean Basom and Becky Schwartz headed down Lowell Street at a fast pace, kicking off their effort around 9 a.m., while other twosomes hit other areas of the city.
Following the clean-up effort, a cook-out awaited the workers at the Depot.
City trucks were on hand to collect the day's accumulation of garbage-filled bags.
