Cleanup day scheduled

Published 9:51 pm Thursday, May 5, 2011

Volunteers at last year’s cleanup day pick up trash near the waterfront. This year’s event is scheduled for May 14. Cleaning supplies will be provided, and volunteers will be treated to an appreciation picnic.

City officials have issued the call for volunteers to help in a citywide cleanup day this month.

The Suffolk Clean Community Commission and Suffolk National Night Out 2011 are sponsoring the “Suffolk Clean Sweep” on May 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. Volunteers can choose the community they want to give a facelift. Cleanup supplies will be distributed that morning at Bennett’s Creek Park and the City Hall parking lot.

Volunteers will be treated to an appreciation picnic at Sleepy Hole Park beginning at noon.
