    More than 1,300 volunteers participated in Cleanup Columbia on Saturday, an annual event where people all over the city pick up litter along streets, streams and trails.

    Leigh Kottwitz, the neighborhood services manager for the city of Columbia, coordinates the event every year in partnership with the city’s volunteer program staff.  She said the best part about Cleanup Columbia is that it brings people together.
