Approximately 110 volunteers gathered on Saturday April 21th to participate in the community clean up.
Earth 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 21, 2018 in the Souderton Community Park, the Souderton Pool, the Clock, Borough Building and Chestnut St Park. Volunteers helped beautify the town by raking leaves, picking up trash, weeding the beds, and spreading mulch to enhance the community for upcoming gatherings.
The event started at 9 am with volunteers being treated to coffee. After working hard from 9 am to 12 noon volunteers were treated to lunch. Served for lunch was pizza, pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, coleslaw, and beverages. The pizza was donated by Broad St Pizza and other food was donated by Jesse’s Barbecue and Local Market both of Souderton. The beverages were donated by Jim and Martha Leary of Souderton.
Several groups volunteered including The Variety Club of Worcester, Boy Scout Troops 14 and 256, IV & Souderton Democrats, Univest, the Souderton Collaborative 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 Jesse’s Barbecue and Local Market, Broad St Pizza and Jim and Martha Leary for their gifts of great food and drinks.
