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.
The schedule for tours are Tuesdays—May 26, June 30, July 28, August 18 and September 22, 2015, from 1-3 P.M.
