Green Volunteering Opportunity for Children and Adults

From Dennis J. Payne, Dewitt Advisory Conservation Commission:

"Attention MPH students

The Town of Dewitt is conducting its annual clean up of our roads on Saturday, October 1 from 9:00 to noon. Meeting locations are Dewitt Town Hall (Butternut Drive) and Robbie T's Pizza (North Street, Jamesville) at 9:00 a.m.. We will supply bags, stickers and safety vests. Workers should bring gloves and dress appropriately. Refreshments will be available at both locations.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to demonstrate their pride in their community. Volunteer hours documentation forms are available for those individuals who meet course or organization requirements.
In the past many students have helped with our fall and spring clean ups. We need your assistance again. For information please contact Dennis Payne at 469-0565 or
