Pride Day Scheduled for May 18, 2013
Lorain County Solid Waste Management District
Chief Seattle summed it up best when he said “We didn’t inherit the Earth from our parents, we’re borrowing it from our children”. We are all responsible for taking care of our environment. With today’s stressed economy many communities can not afford to pay employees to pick up litter, clean parks and playgrounds, paint public buildings, plant, weed and mulch flower beds and other tasks that may seem trivial next to providing important, essential services for their residents.
This was the incentive behind the creation of Pride Day more than fifteen years ago. Pride Day is a county-wide event and a chance to take pride in your community. It’s a day set aside to clean up and beautify Lorain County. Statistics have proven that crime increases in littered, neglected areas, so grab some gardening gloves, a rake, or a broom and join your neighbors in cleaning up your community. You don’t need any special talents to participate, just the motivation for a clean and safe neighborhood.
This year Pride Day will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2013, from 9 am -12 pm. Lorain County celebrates Pride Day as part of Keep America Beautiful’s - Great American Cleanup. The Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest annual community improvement program, brings the power of 3.8 million volunteers and participants to create local change. In 2012 volunteers cleaned, beautified and improved more than 30,700 communities in all 50 states.
If you would like to participate in Pride Day activities in your community please contact Solid Waste Specialist Sally Pecora at (440) 329-5467 or by email at email@example.com. Help to keep Lorain County clean and safe.
