The Park Road Association’s new Beautification Club kicked off its efforts with a successful ‘Community Clean Up Walk’ on Saturday.
The Park Road Association is incredibly excited to announce the formation of a Beautification Club, led by long-time residential neighbors and Park Road Association members Steve and Deanna Dewey.
The Deweys intend to ensure the Beatification Club fulfills its mission of enhancing and promoting property upkeep and beautification in the Park Road Neighborhood, and goals include working with town officials, businesses, and residents to increase annual and perennial plantings in the area through planters and permanent planting beds; developing a volunteer group to provide periodic upkeep of commercial and residential properties – including weeding, mulching, pruning/trimming, planting, garbage pick up, light maintenance, etc.; and working with town officials, local contractors, and design professionals to provide assistance with larger maintenance, renovation and upkeep projects.
The Beautification Club celebrated its formation with the first ever “Community Clean Up Walk” on Saturday, Sept. 9, led by Steve and Deanne Dewey along with Janie Barter.
Volunteers – area residents, business owners, and others from the community – gathered at 9:30 a.m. and followed four planned walking routes, each approximately 1.5 miles long, picking up trash as they went along.
Volunteers included Tracey Wilson, Beth Bye, Dane Silcox, Kim Silcox, Julie Krug, Jon Kaplan, Mackenzie Snow, Nu Ha, Erin Faraci, John Barter, Janie Barter, Jack Barter, Deanna Dewey, Steve Dewey, Steve Dewey (senior), Wally Dewey, Nancy Chamberlain, John Paindiris, Nate Paindiri, and Zach Paindiris.
