Annual Cleanup is May 2

Annual Newton cleanup will be May 2

NEWTON, N.C. – If you’re looking to earn some volunteer service hours or would like to help keep Newton beautiful, join us for the City of Newton Annual Cleanup Event.

This year’s cleanup is 8:30 a.m.-noon Saturday, May 2. The cleanup will begin at Westside Jaycee Park, which is at the intersection of Southwest Boulevard and West J Street.

Light refreshments will be served before groups fan out across the city to areas designated for sprucing up. There’s no need to bring cleanup equipment with you—T-shirts, safety vests, gloves and bags will be provided.

The cleanup is a great opportunity for your club, team or community group to get together and earn some service hours. Churches, Scout troops and school clubs are welcome to participate.

After the cleanup, participants are invited to return to Westside Jaycee Park at noon for a hotdog lunch.

The city of Newton is proud to host the cleanup in partnership with Keep Catawba County Beautiful. The cleanup coincides with the N.C. Department of Transportation’s Spring Litter Sweep.

If you would like to participate, contact Angie Harris-Ramseur at 828-695-4288 or
