Phoenixville Jaycees Celebrating Earth Day with Downtown Cleanup

The Phoenixville Jaycees will be honoring Earth Day—in advance—with a Downtown Cleanup on Sunday, April 5th beginning at noon, rain or shine.

“The goal of the Jaycees is to have a positive impact on our community,” said Jaycees
President Shane Dilworth. “The downtown is a jewel and is used by everyone.”

Jaycees members will meet at Headquarters (8 Gay Street) at noon to disperse teams
throughout the downtown. The cleanup will focus on the 100–300 blocks of Bridge
Street, the unit blocks of Gay and Main Streets, the 200 block of Church Street, as well as the Prospect Street and Bridge Street parking lots.

The event is not limited to Jaycees members; “we have sought out and received
positive responses from the business owners, the Kiwanis, Whitehorse Rugby, and the
borough,” said event organizer David Boelker. “We also encourage residents to pitch in and join us that day, even if for thirty minutes,” said Boelker.

The Jaycees request that volunteers bring a pair of work gloves that day. The Jaycees
would like to thank those that have volunteered their time or donated items to this
event: Hipster Home, Steel City Coffee House, Franco Ristorante, and Phoenixville Borough.

The Phoenixville Jaycees have been creating a better community since 1952 and are
constantly striving to make Phoenixville a better place to live through the hard work and dedication of its members. The Jaycees meet on the 2nd Thursday of every month at their Headquarters, 8 Gay Street, Phoenixville, PA 19460.
