Peekskill students will be lending a hand in a city beautification project. Read the release below from the school district on the effort:
Peekskill Middle School students will again help beautify the City of Peekskill by participating in the painting of new trash receptacles. Volunteer artists are invited to join the students in transforming 55-gallon oil drums into works of art. The project is part of CLEAN, a City of Peekskill initiative, and takes place on a day dedicated to park clean up: April 16. The painting will take place at the Gazebo from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Riverfront Green Gazebo.
CLEAN stands for “Committed to Litter Enforcement and Adopting Neighborhoods,” and the organization’s motto this year is “Paint a CLEAN Footprint.” The trash receptacle beautification effort is organized by Tina Bongar of the West Side Neighborhood Association.
The City of Peekskill is also organizing trash clean-up efforts in every park on April 16, from the hours of 8 a.m. to noon. Lunch will be provided at noon at the Gazebo.
