Written by sitecats on . Posted in Front Page, News

Approximately 100 volunteers gathered on Saturday April 22th to participate in the community clean up.

Earth dayEarth Day began in 1970 to create awareness for the Earth’s environment. Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22.

Souderton Borough volunteers worked together on Saturday April 22, 2017 in the Souderton Community Park, the Souderton Pool, the Main Street Plaza and along Front St adjacent to the railroad tracks. Volunteers helped beautify the town by raking leaves, picking up trash, weeding the beds, spreading mulch and planting many flowers to enhance the community for upcoming gatherings.

The event started at 9 am with volunteers being treated to coffee donated by The Broad Street Grind in Souderton and donuts donated by Landis Markets in Telford.  After working hard from 9 am to 12 noon volunteers were treated to lunch.  Served for lunch was pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, coleslaw, and beverages.  The food was donated by Jesse’s Barbecue and Local Market of Souderton and beverages were donated by Jim and Martha Leary of Souderton.

Several groups volunteered including CAL sports of Harleysville, Boy Scout Trooops 14/137/256 and 401, IV & Souderton Democrats, Univest,  and Zwingli UCC. In addition to the groups of volunteers there were several local residents, borough staff and borough councilors

The Borough would like to say thank you to the many volunteers for their hard work in making the town look so great. A special thank you to The Broad Street Grind, Landis Markets, Jesse’s Barbecue and Local Market, and Jim and Martha Leary for their gifts of great food and drinks. We would also like to say thank you to Brian and Beth Goshow and A.M Goshow & Son Inc. for donating all paper products and other supplies.
