ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH – The Keep St. John Beautiful Committee will hold the 9th Annual Clean Sweep event on April 11, 2015 from 8:30 to 12:00 noon at the Thomas F. Daley Memorial Park (Hwy 51 Park) in an effort to create awareness for "Keep St. John Beautiful" Month. This year’s event will consist of a kickoff in the morning, a parish-wide clean-up, a celebration of volunteerism, and a dedication to former District Attorney and Keep St. John Beautiful Leader, Thomas F. Daley.
The Clean Sweep Committee has targeted major thoroughfares for cleaning, but encourages residents, civic groups, school organizations, and businesses to clean areas in which they are located. Churches and neighborhood associations are also asked to pitch in with a focus on their neighborhoods. Interested participants are asked to register for the Spring Clean Sweep online at sjbparish.com or by calling Dana Milioto at 985-652-9569 to reserve your clean up location.
All supplies and t-shirts will be available at the Thomas F. Daley Memorial Park at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 11. Supplies will not be provided in advance. All participants are invited back to the Park at 11:30 a.m. for free food, refreshments, music and a group photo in appreciation of the volunteer work and commitment to keeping St. John beautiful.
