POINT PLEASANT — Snow showers and cold temperatures put a damper on last week’s city-wide cleanup day in Point Pleasant, but the event has been rescheduled for this Saturday.
According to members of Point Pleasant In Bloom, residents can participate in this year’s cleanup day from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Volunteers should meet at the Mason County Tourism Center located at the bottom of the Bartow Jones Bridge to get supplies and instructions. There will be prizes awarded to the groups that clean up the most bags of trash and there will be free refreshments.
In addition, this is an opportunity for groups/organizations/students/individuals who need community service hours to obtain those hours. Organizers will be available to sign the necessary paperwork for those to receive school community service credit.
In addition to helping with the city-wide cleanup, PPIB has more events planned to “make Point Pleasant shine” in the coming months.
Upcoming activities include: The city-wide yard sale on April 30. The City of Point Pleasant also waives its $5 yard sale permit fee for this day only. The Point Pleasant In Bloom and Tu-Endie-Wei Garden Club’s Annual Perennial Sale will be May 7. On this day, the two groups will offer cuttings from members’ gardens for sale, PPIB will also have various memorial arrangements for sale and will be taking orders for “new” perennial shrubs.
In addition, PPIB is planning a Point Pleasant City Garden Planting Day where youth groups assist PPIB and Tu-Endie Wei Garden Club in planting and weeding city gardens.
Also, this spring, walkers at Krodel Park can enjoy a new swing purchased and installed by members of PPIB.
For information on PPIB and how to get involved with any of these events, message the group on Facebook.
