Clean Sweep Day April 25 to celebrate Earth Day
On Saturday, April 25, the Greencastle Civic League and the Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce will celebrate Earth Day with a Clean Sweep Day event, from 9 a.m. to noon.
All community members, Chamber members and Greencastle students are invited to join in the effort to clean and tidy up the community.
Citizens will check in at a checkpoint location throughout the city, agree to the section of a street they will clean up, and collect clean-up supplies, including trash bags and vests if needed.
Checkpoints will be located at Big Walnut Sports Park, Robe-Ann Park and downtown Greencastle during the Farmers' Market and Greencastle Earth Day celebration. When they have completed the clean-up, they can return the bags to the checkpoint location.
The K-5 classroom who has the most students participate in Clean Sweep Day will be awarded a pizza party, sponsored by Monical's Pizza.
The Chamber member with the most participants will be awarded the coveted Clean-Up Day traveling plaque that is currently held by Putnam County Hospital.
`No reservations are necessary, simply show up on April 25 at a checkpoint location of your choosing. Persons may clean solo or with a group.
