1.2K Jehovah’s Witnesses clean convention venue in Lincoln
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — About 1,200 Jehovah’s Witnesses have volunteered to clean the venue in Lincoln where their annual regional convention is scheduled to be held this weekend.
The Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/299yuuM ) reports that more than 6,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses will attend the convention at Pinnacle Bank Arena this weekend.
On Thursday morning, church members from Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri began cleaning the entire venue. They’ll each volunteer three to eight hours.
The group has gone so far as to wipe down the railings, scrape gum off the bottom of chairs and vacuum rooms that will remain mostly empty.
They’ll clean the area floor to ceiling again after the event ends Sunday.
Convention spokesman Brian Esser says the group likes to leave the venue cleaner than it was when they arrived.
