Cleanliness is not only next to Godliness,
Cleanliness is next to faith in the future,
respect for the past and a willingness
to commit our energies today!
On Friday, May 10, 2013, the City of Galveston dedicated the new dog park located at Menard Park in Honor of longtime island residents Jim and Pat McCloy. The McCloy's have been ardent supporters of our community and true animal lovers. It gave the Board and members of Clean Galveston, Inc., ( a Keep America Beautiful/Keep Texas Beautiful organization) great pride in donating the landscaping for this park and recommending the dedication. The McCloy's have been involved with our organization for 30 years, and we couldn't think of a better project than landscaping this park and dedicating it in their honor.
