Volunteers needed for ‘Fall Cleanup Day’ on 9/18

Published on

Rochester Main Street, Rochester Riverwalk Committee, and the Rochester Recreation Department will be partnering for ‘Fall Cleanup Day’ and seek volunteers to assist with various projects around the city.

“Main Street is always happy to collaborate with Rec and the Riverwalk to beautify Rochester,” said Matt Wyatt, RMS Board Member.If you don’t like what you see out there, consider volunteering to help us clean it up and beautify the landscape. We need your help!”

Beginning at 9:00am on Sunday, September 18th, Rochester Main Street will be removing the weeds and overgrown vegetation from Wyandotte Alley (between Fallen Leaf Bistro and Skeletone Records), and hanging Edison lights.

Volunteers will then move over to Central Square to plant bulbs around the perimeter of the park. Main Street will provide some gardening tools (shovels, rakes, trowels, etc.); but encourage volunteers to bring their own gloves and tools, if desired.

Riverwalk and Rec will start at 11:00am to clean up garbage from Hanson Pines to the Kayak Launch on Hillsdale Drive. Recreation will provide garbage bags and rubber gloves.

Volunteers are encouraged to attend wearing comfortable shoes and old clothing. All participation is welcomed.
