Members of the Block by Block committee met Wednesday, April 1 at the NEAT office to discuss details for the PRIDE DAY CLEAN UP. Members are taking a leadership role in organizing the PRIDE DAY CLEAN UP and will be passing out flyers around the North End to invite everyone to help out on PRIDE DAY, April 25.

Much help is needed both on April 25 and before. NEAT is looking for a few more “block captains”. Block captains will help by handing out flyers, encouraging neighbors to help clean up on April 25, and helping make sure volunteers get cleaning items on PRIDE DAY. Volunteers are also needed to help clean neighborhoods, gardens, and parks. No experience is necessary for either job, just the willingness to help out. Please call NEAT at 860-346-4845 for more details.

The Block by Block Committee was formed for members to take greater ownership of their neighborhoods. The committee discusses ways to make the area cleaner and safer. They meet the first Wednesday of every month at 5:30 at the NEAT office. Anyone who is interested in being a part of this group, please come to a meeting and see how you can help. Please call or email NEAT ahead to confirm the meeting will be held at this time and location. NEAT’s phone number is 860-346-4845 and the email is
