Rupert, Idaho (KMVT-TV) With this year's Operation Facelift closely coming to an end, one more Magic Valley town decided to get it on the action.
Over in Rupert the city decided to take on 5 major projects designed to make their historic town shine back to its original glory.
Over at the Historic Rupert Square a group of volunteers spent the afternoon pulling weeds in and around the squares flowerbeds.
Also at the square, another group broke out the paint brushes and put up a fresh coat of paint on the gazebo, sound booth and trash can holders.
Over at Sunrise Cleaners and Hanna's Jewelry volunteers there were busy pulling weeds and painting trim.
Also another group of volunteers made their way down Highway 24 from Pioneer Station to the City of Rupert's main entrance picking up trash and pulling weeds.
“It feels great to come out and help the city. A lot of us are involved in many project around the city but to come and help the city out and beautify getting ready for the 4th of July celebrations. It’s a great feeling to get out and to be of service for the community”.
Said Operation Facelift Volunteer Jason Gibbons.
Two other buildings in town also got some much needed TLC.
The Rupert Police Station will be getting a complete facelift on the ageing buildings façade.
That project is slated to last a few months finishing up in July or August.
And lastly the Minidoka County Juvenile building will also be receiving a much needed façade upgrade.
