North End PRIDE Day This Saturday!

The North End Action Team (NEAT)has organized a neighborhood clean up day, tomorrow, Saturday, April 25th from 9-3. Residents and volunteers are invited to spruce up common spaces in Middletown’s North End neighborhood or to just walk outside and start sweeping. The North End will unite for a block-by-block neighborhood clean up effort, picking up trash, cleaning out flower boxes, preparing the Erin Street Community garden for spring planting and more.

Resident leaders of NEAT are organizing Pride Day as a way to get more people involved to make visible improvements along with their neighbors. Pride Day will provide a great opportunity for people to get involved for the first time or continue to show commitment to the neighborhood.

A major component of Pride Day is the cooperation of local groups, including the Jonah Center and Earth Ministries, along with NEAT. Volunteers from partner organizations will work side by side with residents, distributing tools and water and helping collect bags of garbage and recyclables.

To celebrate the day’s hard work, NEAT will hold a Unity Pride Pizza party in the Erin Street Community garden at 1:00 pm.

I hope you'll join us!

You can meet at the Erin Street Community Garden from 9-3 or in the parking lot of the Green Street Arts Center from 9-10.
