“500” – Large Downtown Lynn Cleanup April 25th

Spread the love

Earth Day is April 22nd, but it’s one of those holidays people celebrate when convenient, and one that should be, as the saying goes, every day. A few days later – Saturday, April 25th, Juan Gonzalez from Without Borders Magazine along with a sizable group of sponsors that includes LynnHappens will descend on downtown and pick it clean.

In April 2013 Juan Gonzalez gathered a coalition around a successful cleanup effort called “300” (link to coverage).

It’s 2015, and Gonzalez is calling it “500.”

Lisa Nerich of the Lynn DPW will receive a special thanks for her efforts, and in particular, for providing tools and support on the day. Plus, recycling Coordinator Julia Greene will take a moment to speak to the volunteers about the city’s still-new trash and recycling program in an effort to do more outreach to the Latino community. A similar outreach and education effort was made when Councilor Hong Net organized a forum with the Cambodian Community (Video of that forum, here).

Volunteers are meeting at Lynn City Hall at 8:30am, and here’s a bonus for people who register through this link – present your registration ticket at Bernie’s Place for half-off your order. (Valid once per registration and through May 7th.)
