A letter to the editor was received on the South Park cleanup..
|Davidand Joan Buchewicz|
I want to thank all of the South Park Proud Volunteers that have participated in our Roadside Cleanup events and adopted roads in the Spring and Fall. The volunteers are doing their part to help the environment by removing paper litter, plastics, and debris from the roadsides that would eventually end up in our sewer systems and waterways. During the past 12-month period we have cleared over 600 bags of litter from the roadsides.
And after many years of recruiting volunteers for the ‘Adopt A Road’ program, all of the main roads in South Park have been ‘adopted’ and we have hired a part-time employee, 20 hours a month to clear litter from the roadsides.
Listed below are the South Park Proud Volunteers who deserve our thanks:
A South Park Family, AFGE #1916, Anglers, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Dalisay Family, Democratic Committee, Education Association, Environmental Club, Friends of the County Park, Girl's Softball, Interact Club, Kayser- Larner- King Families, Joan Buchewicz, Lion's Club, Middle School Student Council & Service Group, Mt. Zion Church, Paul Riis Legacy Preservation Volunteers, Self Family, SHILOH Baptist Church, Snee Family, Stanish Family, South Hills Friends of the Montour Trail, South Park Historical Society, VFW Library, South Park Women's Club, Youth Football and Cheerleaders, Youth Soccer and Baseball, the many individuals that cleaned up roadsides without being part of a group, and a special thank you to Mr. Robert Ruddick.
Our next roadside cleanup is April 27. Please join us for registration and supplies at 9:00 AM at the Township Administration Offices. South Park's, now ‘World Famous’ Hot Dogs, will be served after the event around 11:00 AM.
Want to volunteer or get involved? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you see someone littering or dumping, please get the license plate and call 412-473-3056. Thank you for what you do to make South Park a better place to live.
