Albany -- Seven Albany neighbors share this year's award as the Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful Top Volunteers.

Seven neighbors of the Country Club Estates were honored with the Beautification Environmental Award. Every Wednesday the seven walk three miles on St. Andrews Drive, West Gordon Avenue, and Willie Pitts Road with plastic bags, gathering trash.

 They say people are throwing out less litter, after seeing them cleaning up. Claudia Peterson said "We have seen a decline in trash that's along Willie Pitts. That's a bad area for us, with bottles and cans."

The seven neighbors call themselves the "Neighbors of Dignity and Pride." They hope more South Georgians will follow their lead, and beautify the environment while exercising for health.
