NEW ALBANY — Volunteers are needed to help with the rescheduled fall beautification of New Albany on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Volunteers are asked to bring their own work gloves, trowels, rakes, brooms, shovels and weed-pullers. Participants should meet at the parking lot of MainSource Bank, 100 E. Spring St., anytime during event hours to sign in and pick up task assignments.
