Rain or shine, Warren hosts Earth Day cleanup Saturday

Posted

Rain or shine, the annual Earth Day cleanup scheduled for Saturday in Warren will go on as planned. Luckily, forecasters predict that while we will have rain Saturday, it won't start until the afternoon.

Above, members of Cub Scout Troop 25 sport Warren Earth Day T-shirts as they get ready to join dozens of others for the annual clean-up. They include (back, from left) Jonathan Richardson, Owen Cummings, Aiden Medeiros, Eli Blount, Sonny Pagano and Dario Coletta, and (front, from left) Jacob Richardson, Will Machado, Finn Lawless, Ian Macko, Henry Fultz and Jackson Dove. Everyone is invited to join members of the  Conservation Commission at the Pete Sepe Pavilion at Recreation Park on Asylum Road starting at 9 a.m. to get their assignments and for refreshments and a free T-shirt. Volunteers are also invited to enjoy free hot dogs and hamburgers when they return. This year’s celebration  will include prizes for the most unusual plastic items found. Representatives from Greening the Sphere will also be on hand to share what they are doing to make a positive impact on the environment.
