Morristown Beautiful, Inc. is dedicated to just that: Keeping Morristown Beautiful. So its annual Spring Clean-Up, co-sponsored by the Morristown Clean Communities program offers an ideal opportunity for all members of the greater Morristown community to participate in the annual Morristown Clean-Up Day on Saturday, April 21. The action begins at 9 a.m. behind the Morristown Municipal Building, 200 South Street, with registration and breakfast treats. (Enter from Franklin Street and park in the lot.)
That’s also when volunteers will receive their morning-only work assignments. Clean-Up sites include parks, playgrounds, lots and roadways. Everyone can participate in the Clean-Up; there are no age limits! “A few hours of your time will make a big difference in helping to make Spring in Morristown beautiful!” encourages Kathleen O’Neill Margiotta, head of Morristown Clean Communities.
Volunteers should dress for work detail and, if possible, bring their own work gloves, rakes, shovels and brooms. Bags for garbage and recycling and will be provided. Work assignments will be completed by 11:30.
Volunteers have been demonstrating their community pride by joining the annual Morristown Clean-Up for over 25 years. Many families, individuals, members of churches and temples, civic and school groups, including Scout troops have made the Clean-Up an annual tradition, as they comb much loved town locations to collect and dispose of trash that has accumulated over the winter. Many of these groups request specific areas they would like to target and have come up with additional projects to help beautify the town and make Morristown even more inviting.
Any group wishing to request a particular site assignment can do so in advance by contacting Margiotta at 973-644-4363 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advanced registration is not required. The “heavy rain date” is Sunday, April 22.
