We will be having coffee and donuts, giving away GMG Stickas and drawing names from our Earth Day Volunteers for some long sleeve GMG embroidered T Shirts and an embroidered GMG cap (donated by Paulie Walnuts) www.art-rocks.org. There will be an Art Rock hidden. for our Waterfront dockside cleanup.
Send in your volunteer pictures from around the city to firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll be live blogging it all day long and we want to give recognition to all those folks that are making a difference today!
Melissa Cox is picking up the goodies and yellow bags along with the ones that Rose LoPiccolo dropped off. Melissa is also bringing disposable gloves in case you don’t have any.
If you would like to volunteer in other locations here’s more info from Rose-
The Clean City Initiative will be focusing its efforts on Stage Fort Park from 9 to noon, but the clean up is citywide and participants are encouraged to choose a public area in Gloucester they would like to see cleaned up. We are also asking different groups to reach out to their members and pick a problem area to clean that day. Listed below are some hot spots if folks need ideas.
Green Street Playground Cherry Street
Pavilion Beach Maplewood Avenue
Magnolia Avenue Centennial Ave to High School
Poles Hill Fitz Henry Lane
Thatcher Road Railroad Avenue
Fort Square Gloucester Avenue
If you are organizing a group and an area to clean, contact Rose LoPiccolo at Gloucester DPW before the event to let her know where you will be working and estimated number of yellow trash bags and clear recycling bags you will need. Rose can be reached at 978 281 9785. Rose will be maintaining a list of all the clean up spots to insure we are maximizing our efforts! Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own tools and re-useable gloves, although gloves will be available.
Not Attached to a Group??
On the day of the clean up, volunteers (all ages welcome!) should plan to meet at Stage Fort Park Visitors Center starting at 9 am until noon to sign in and pick up trash/recycling bags and gloves, if needed.
