Clean Up New Albany Event – April 28th – 8am – Noon
Beautiful spring weather provides the opportunity to beautify the City of New Albany!
Come enjoy the outdoors and do something positive for your community Saturday, April 28th to help with the beautification of the City of New Albany. Keep New Albany Clean and Green, in partnership with the City, Develop New Albany, and the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County is sponsoring a Citywide Clean-up and Planting Event from 8:00am- 12:00pm on Saturday, April 28th. Participants will help plant flowers, mulch, pull weeds, and assist in trash pickup throughout the city. Last year’s event was a success with over 120 volunteers ranging from scout troops to individuals. This is a city wide event so help organize your friends, family, and club members to make this year’s beautification even better than last.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own gloves, shovels, brooms, weed pullers, and other landscaping equipment. Mulch and garbage bags will be provided by Keep New Albany Clean and Green and Develop New Albany. A grant from the Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County is providing the funds for flowers, plants, and mulch. Refreshments will be provided by MainSource Bank and volunteers should meet at the parking lot of MainSource Bank, 100 East Spring Street, anytime during event hours. Neighborhood organizations are invited to organize groups to focus on their neighborhood. If you are interested in more information or having your club, civic group, or scout troop, please let us know in advance by calling 812-941-0018, 812-945-4332.
