On Saturday, May 6th area residents are invited to participate in the annual Wolfeboro’s Spring Curbside Cleanup in conjunction with Valley Pride Day. Many families, civic groups, and businesses have made this volunteer activity an annual tradition – a great way to neatly tuck away the long winter and fully embrace the lush season ahead.
If you are interested in participating in Wolfeboro Town Cleanup Day there will be two tables open from 8:30am to 11:30 where you are asked to register – Wolfeboro Town Garage at 47 Pine Hill Rd. or in front of Cate Park, across from the Wolfeboro Post Office. Each registration table will be stocked with gloves and bags for all volunteers, as well as a list of street assignments for you to choose from if you do not already have one in mind. Registration is important to help the crew at the Wolfeboro Solid Waste Facility know which streets to collect bags the following day.
If you are planning to volunteer on May 6th, please remember to wear bright colors and bring your own water. The organizers also ask that anyone driving the roads that Saturday morning be extra careful and contentious of volunteers. For more information or to register a group contact Josh Arnold at G.A.L.A. by calling 539-6460 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wolfeboro’s Cleanup Day is part of a larger regional Valley Pride Day, which began in May 2000 and has taken place on the first Saturday in May ever since. Many organizations join the combined effort such as Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, Girl and Boy schools, School groups and classes. Businesses encourage employees to put together teams to clean certain high-traffic areas in the community. A celebration is organized for the volunteers to celebrate the efforts and their community pride following the clean up at the Hampton Inn in North Conway from Noon to 2pm. The celebration will include activities for the kids, food, BBQ, Entertainment, educational presentations, recycling demonstrations, prizes, and awards.
