Clean Gloucester Day to be held Saturday
The seventh annual Clean Gloucester Day will be held at various locations throughout the county from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday.
As of Friday, approximately 550 people had signed up to participate, according to Clean Community Coordinator René Moring. A goal of 650 volunteers has been set and more individuals and groups are welcome to sign up and participate.
Advance notice helps Moring have adequate trash bags, litter grabbers and reflective vests for as many volunteers as possible.
Last year, 587 volunteers participated in Clean Gloucester Day, which Moring said is a way to spruce up the county before the many visitors arrive for the Daffodil Festival, which will be held Saturday and Sunday, April 1-2. The rain date for Clean Gloucester Day is Saturday, March 25.
Individuals and groups have already signed up to clean heavily-littered roads like T.C. Walker, Enos, Burke’s Pond and Burleigh, as well as on Route 198 at Harcum, Moring said. Scouts have signed up to clean up many of the county parks that day, she said. Anyone under age 18 must be under adult supervision.
