Community Pride Month

June is Community Pride Month here in Brunswick, which means it’s time to invest a little bit of elbow grease to make the town shine!

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:
    • Individuals
    • Families
    • 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 brunswickms@gmail.com.  We want to know about your accomplishments.
  • Recognition of participants will be given at the Community Picnic on June 24 at Square Corner Park.
