Volunteers Needed for Saturday’s Vienna Town Clean-Up Day

A few good volunteers are needed to roll up their sleeves and help clean up Vienna.

This Saturday (Nov. 3), the Town of Vienna will host its biannual Town Clean-Up Day. Volunteers will help pick up trash, remove invasive plants, and spruce up areas near the Town Green and several local creeks.

“Community service is alive and well in Vienna,” said John King, Vienna’s parks maintenance superintendent, in a press release. “It brings a closeness — volunteers get to know our staff, and we get to know them. There’s a lot of bonding when you’re expending elbow grease together.”

Organizations, business, families and individuals are all encouraged to come out and help clean the town.

Volunteers are requested to wear full-length pants and long sleeve shirts no matter the weather conditions, as some of the cleanings could take place in underbrush near the creeks. Those with trash pickers are encouraged to bring them, while the Town of Vienna will supply gloves, trash bags and other necessary equipment.

Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at the Town Green, rain or shine.

Those interested in volunteering should email King at [email protected].
