Volunteers will tackle a variety of projects on the annual cleanup day
EAST PALESTINE -- The East Palestine Dog Days Committee has begun planning for its third annual Dog Day.
This year the event will be May 14.
Volunteers will be asked to work on a number of citywide projects that include: a cleanup at Boatman Cemetery; painting the old train station on W. Taggart Street; landscaping at the high school and middle school; weeding and mulching, along with cleanup at the city park and the mini-park downtown; general cleanup and painting at the Historical Society's Log Cabin and a city-wide creek cleaning.
Volunteer Registration Forms are available at the East Palestine Memorial Public Library, any of the district's school buildings and East Palestine City Hall.
The steering committee includes: Chairwoman Joann G. Knight, Sandy Wales, Lisa Rhorbaugh, Mark Rhodes, Jim Wilson, Greg Reeves, Robert McElroy, Jerry Coblentz, Sharri Kintz, Wendy Tyger, Cindy Clark, Gary Clark, Brett Todd and Jeff Richardson.
On the day of the event, all volunteers are asked to sign in at the city park's Community Center between 8 and 9 a.m. and then report to their project sites. A luncheon will be provided to all volunteers from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the day of the event.
Last year about 300 volunteers completed a variety of community-wide projects.
This year the committee is urging all residents to get involved in improving the community on the annual "Day of Giving."
