From the Mayor’s Desk
For the past two years, Yeadon has partnered with Comcast as part of their dedication in contributing to a clean environment and showcasing their dedication in being great corporate neighbors. So in that spirit, they have provided volunteers to come to Yeadon to clean up various sites around Earth Day on the annual Calendar. So I’m pleased to announce that Comcast has agreed again to partner with Yeadon for a third year running. In addition, they donate $600 to the borough as a goodwill corporate gesture each time they participate with us.
This year, we are asking for volunteers to come out to our main clean-up sites at the intersections of Church Lane and Chester Avenue and/or the area of West Cobbs Creek Parkway from Chester Avenue to St. Louis. We will be cleaning up those sites on Saturday, May 4 from 8:00 am to Noon.
Please meet at Church Lane and Chester Avenue at 7:45 am on Saturday, May 4. Gloves and tools will be provided. We will also be providing T-Shirts for volunteers. Bottled water will be on hand to keep us hydrated and porta-potties will be available on site for our added convenience.
As each year has grown in scope and enthusiasm, this year we will expand our efforts in Mayoral Proclamation, dedicating May 4, 2019 as “Yeadon Clean-Up Day.” We are encouraging the entire borough to join in a community clean-up effort – from a home-based yardwork spring cleaning, to helping our neighbors clean up their block and common driveways. In concert with our Public Works Department, we will dedicate (to be announced) major intersections where we can also discard of bulk trash in conveniently deployed dumpsters. Please visit our website at yeadonborough.org for more information as our clean-up Day info will be updated as the date gets closer.
Hope to see ya out there at one of our sites, or on your block shoulder to shoulder with your neighbors.
