Approximately 65 volunteers gathered on Saturday April 27th 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 27, 2019 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. After working hard from 9 am to 12 noon volunteers were treated to lunch. Participants were excited to find that lunch was provided by The Burger Shop of Main Street, Souderton. The beverages were donated by Jim and Martha Leary of Souderton.
Several groups volunteered including Moyer Indoor/Outdoor, Univest, Indian Valley Democrats, and the Souderton Charter School Collaborative. In addition to the groups of volunteers there were several local residents, borough staff, borough councilors, and Mayor John Reynolds.
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 Burger Shop and Jim and Martha Leary for their gifts of great food and drinks.
Below are some pictures of the event.
