Volunteers picked up litter in downtown Lexington on Monday, part of an effort to clean up for the Breeders' Cup.
"You need to clean up the house because company is coming," said David Elsen, executive director of the High Street YMCA.
Elsen, who was part of a team from the Y that pitched in, is also a member of group called Keep Lexington Beautiful, which strives to keep the city looking good.
