Newark Post - - Local News - POST STAFF RE­PORT

More than 120 vol­un­teers braved cold tem­per­a­tures and a mid-April snow shower on Satur­day morn­ing to help clean up Ne­wark dur­ing the an­nual Spring Com­mu­nity Cleanup.

The vol­un­teers, who to­gether worked a to­tal of 251 hours, col­lected 140 trash bags of de­bris from along road­ways and in city parks.

The cleanup also co­in­cided with the broader Christina River Wa­ter­shed Cleanup, which en­com­passes White Clay, Red Clay and Brandy­wine creeks. That event marked its 25th year on Satur­day.
