TICONDEROGA - Friday, April 23, has been selected as the date for this year's Downtown Ticonderoga Cleanup Day.
"Please mark your calendars, and we hope you will come out to participate," said John Bartlett, committee chairman.
The event is being organized by the Design Committee of the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, but participation is not limited to just the members of the Design Committee.
Clean-up will start at 8 a.m., but any free time anyone can spare to help out will be much appreciated. There will be water, soda and pizza for everyone who volunteers their time to this effort.
According to Bartlett, a Friday date was selected this year so that most of the businesses would be open with staff available to help in some way. For example, last year merchants were encouraged to sweep the sidewalks in front of their stores before the town highway department washed down the street. All are asked to do this again, plus clean the trash and debris from alleyways and the rear entrances to their buildings.
