Newton Spring Litter Sweep is April 16

NEWTON, N.C. (March 23, 2016) – 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 Spring Litter Sweep.

This litter sweep is 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, April 16. The cleanup will begin at Westside Jaycee Park, which is at the intersection of Southwest Boulevard and West J Street. In the event of rain, the cleanup will be held April 30.

A light breakfast will be served before groups fan out across the city to areas designated for sprucing up. There’s no need to bring cleanup equipment; all supplies 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 for a hotdog lunch.

Newton is proud to host the litter sweep 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 aharris@newtonnc.gov.
