Com­mu­nity set to hold cleanup day in Rock Hall May 19

Kent County News - - NEWS -

ROCK HALL — From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Satur­day, May 19, Rock Hall res­i­dents can help col­lect trash, which has ac­cu­mu­lated within their lo­cal com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment.

Mayor Brian Jones, who pro­posed the event at an April 12 town coun­cil meet­ing, said he re­ceived a few com­plaints about lit­ter on the side of the road. He said that it was good for the town to tidy up be­fore Me­mo­rial Day week­end, when Rock Hall will be flooded with va­ca­tion­ers.

“It’s a per­fect op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to come to­gether,” Jones said.

Jones said that the com­mu­nity would start on North Main Street, then res­i­dents could pick a spot and get to work. He said that the group would work its way to­ward Ferry Park, where ev­ery­one will meet for pizza around 1 p.m.

The first 50 par­tic­i­pants to regis­ter for the cleanup the day of the event will re­ceive a T-shirt, Jones said.
