Emmitsburg residents, we need your help! Please join Emmitsburg for the third Emmitsburg Volunteer Community Clean-Up Day on Saturday, September 8, 2018, from 9:00 a.m.-noon. Volunteers will pick up and dispose of loose trash and litter from the parks, roads, and alleys in the downtown Emmitsburg area. Meet at Memorial Park (just behind the Post Office) at 8:15 a.m. for a light breakfast and to organize into teams. Plastic bags, gloves, and garbage pokers will be provided. Cleanup begins east of Seton Avenue on both the north and south sides of Main Street, working towards the Silo Hill/Main Street intersection (where the Jubilee shopping center is located).
We had great first and second Clean-Up Days. Thanks to all the volunteers who picked up well over 100 pounds of trash and litter. This is simple hands-on work that needs to be done to help keep Emmitsburg a beautiful community. If you have a passion for your community and a little extra time on September 8, please come out for the third Emmitsburg Volunteer Community Clean-Up Day.
