The long winter is coming to an end and time to clean up the winter debris.
Clean up Emporium will begin Tuesday April 22 when volunteers from the Emporium Fire Department will wash the sidewalks and Route 120 from Chestnut to Maple Streets. Those attending events that evening are asked to not park along the street in those areas.
Saturday April 26 volunteers will clean up downtown Emporium. Projects include the mini-park, vacant store front windows, and picking up litter along West Creek Rails to Trails. The Cameron County Chamber of Commerce will coordinate the projects. “Volunteers and those with project ideas are encouraged to call the office,” says executive director Tina Johns Solak, “the number of projects tackled will depend on the number of volunteers.”
