1st Annual Aston Township Clean-Up Day a huge Success

Clean Up Day May 2nd

Clean Up Day May 2nd

More than 100 volunteers gathered on May 2 for the first annual Aston Township Clean-Up Day. Supplied with trash bags and gloves, the volunteers headed to 10 sites throughout the township to pick-up debris and brush.

The brain-child of Aston 2nd Ward Commissioner Carol Graham, the event was a long time coming. For many years, Graham joined with the Chester Ridley Creek Watershed (CRC) and a few volunteers to clean the west branch of the Chester Creek. As the number of volunteers increased, so did the sites, which included Poore and Fisher Parks.
