The Keep St. John Beautiful Committee will hold a Clean Sweep event from 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 11, at the Thomas F. Daley Memorial Park, 2900 U.S. 51, LaPlace.
After a kickoff in the morning, there will be a parishwide cleanup, a celebration of volunteerism and a dedication to former District Attorney and Keep St. John Beautiful leader Thomas F. Daley.
The Clean Sweep Committee has targeted major thoroughfares for cleaning but encourages residents, civic groups, school organizations and businesses to clean areas in which they are located. Churches and neighborhood associations are also asked to pitch in with a focus on their neighborhoods. Interested participants are asked to register for the Clean Sweep at sjbparish.com or by calling Dana Milioto at (985) 652-9569 to reserve a cleanup location.
Supplies and T-shirts will be available at the Thomas F. Daley Memorial Park at 8:30 a.m. April 11. Supplies will not be provided in advance. All participants are invited back to the park at 11:30 a.m. for free food, refreshments, music and a group photo in appreciation of the volunteer work and commitment to keeping St. John beautiful.
