Berlin’s Annual Clean-Up Day will be Saturday, April 16th and will be the official start of Take Pride in Berlin Week, running from Saturday the 16th to Saturday, April 23rd.
“For more than a decade volunteers have dedicated a few hours on an April Saturday to help give Berlin’s parks, downtown and neighborhoods a spring cleaning with individuals and teams helping with planting, weeding, raking, mulching and whatever else needs attention, “ said Town Administrative Services Director Mary Bohlen .
New this year will be sprucing up the front of the building at Town’s new facility, Berlin Falls Park (former Tyson property), located on Old Ocean City Boulevard.
Sign-up on the April 16th begins at 8:30 a.m. in Stephen Decatur, Henry and Berlin Falls Parks and Clean-Up goes until noon, followed by lunch in Henry Park for all volunteers. Some supplies will be available for use, but participants are encouraged to bring their own if possible.
Adult volunteers are also needed for the annual Hudson Branch Clean-Up; heavy-lifting and wet conditions are involved, so appropriate attire is strongly suggested; please contact Steve Farr at 410-629-1538 or Development@actforbays.org if you wish to help at Hudson Branch.
During Take Pride in Berlin Week, residents and businesses are encouraged to show their Berlin Pride in whatever way is most meaningful to them. Let us know why you have “Berlin Pride” on Facebook at “Take Pride in Berlin Week”.
