UIU spring cleaning

FAYETTE (KWWL) -- With the beautiful spring weather comes spring cleaning.  While most of us are busy cleaning our homes, students faculty and staff at Upper Iowa University cleaned the city of Fayette.

It's the third annual Fayette Appreciation Day.

The tradition began in honor of the University's 150th anniversary as a way to show appreation to the city -- and the idea stuck.

More than 500 people spent the day picking up trash and repairing fields at Cardinal Park, painting Fayette Lumber and sprucing up the walking trails near the Volga River.
