The Lake Erie Beach Neighborhood Revitalization Task Force, in collaboration with the Town of Evans and Lake Erie Beach Fire Company, are making plans for the second annual neighborhood-wide clean-up for the Lake Erie Beach area to be held on Saturday, April 20 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (rain or shine event).
The Lake Erie Beach Fire Hall, 9483 Lakeshore Road will serve as the host the day of the event; mobilizing volunteers in the morning and serving as the drop-off location for the trash collected that day. The clean-up will focus on vacant lots, parks and recreational areas, and streets that are major thoroughfares in Lake Erie Beach area. The clean-up will also include the neighborhood commercial area along Old Lakeshore Road.
We are starting to see some positive changes in the Lake Erie Beach community, said Lori Szewczyk director of Community Development for the Town of Evans. The clean-up is meant to encourage community pride among the residents of Lake Erie Beach that will stretch beyond this one-day event, she said.
The LEB Task Force is looking for volunteers to assist with the concentrated effort or organize a clean-up on their own block. This one-day event will require community support from those willing to volunteer time, talent and resources.
