State Fair Wraps Up In Sedalia

(Sedalia) The State Fair is over, and one of the final tasks — if done right — does not get much attention.

A team of young teenagers do a final trash cleanup.

Brian Foster leads the youngsters in the program, who have been on duty all eleven days.

He says about 17 to 18 kids spent early mornings picking up trash, late mornings sweeping sidewalks, and picking up trash again in the late afternoons.

Foster says the teens sometimes find interesting items while picking up trash.

Last year, someone found a sword — which was turned over to the Highway Patrol.
