Throughout the month of June, Brunswick Main Street will be encouraging folks to clean up and spruce up with pride.
Brunswick used to have a Community Pride Day every spring. We are bringing this back and expanding it to be a Community Pride Month, to allow people to participate as their own schedules allow.
- Purpose: To promote personal pride in our community.
- Who is encouraged to participate:
- Community organizations
- ad hoc groups of friends who share a common interest.
- High School students who are looking for a way to fulfill their community service requirements for graduation.
- Examples of what can be done:
- Clean up your own front yard (or back yard)
- Do that fix-up project that you have been putting off.
- Help a widow or a single parent whose home might need a little repair.
- Weed a public area that has been neglected.
- (As appropriate, of course, obtain permission before working on someone else’s property.)
- Organize your neighbors to work on your block or street
- If you need help finding a project, contact Main Street manager Terri Householder at 301 834 7500 ext 4 and we will give you a list of suggested projects. Main Street’s mission is focused on a defined downtown area so we encourage participants to consider a downtown project.
- Take “before” and “after” pictures of your project and submit them to Main Street at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to know about your accomplishments.
- Recognition of participants will be given at the Community Picnic on June 24 at Square Corner Park.
