Attention Pearl River: Do you know of any community eyesores?

Are their litter eyesore in Pearl River?

The Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program, takes place annually from March 1 through May 31.  Our very own Keep Rockland Beautiful, Inc. is a non-profit affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and we want your feedback Pearl River!!

KRB is organizing thousands of volunteers to go out this Spring to pick up trash all over the county from our roads, parks, streams and trails. This is a fun and meaningful way to spend some time outdoors, connect with your neighbors and help make a difference in your community.  

To volunteer for the Pearl River Community Clean-Up in April, or for more information on Keep Rockland Beautiful, please go to their website at www.keeprocklandbeautiful.org.  

Don't forget to comment below with your answer to the following question:  Are there public eyesores in Pearl River, littered with trash, that are calling for a community cleanup???

RE: Central Ave Park - I agree it needs and should be spruced up. I have an idea that if you like, great, if not well it’s someone else’s idea. Anyway, ask some volunteers (IE Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Garden Club or Seniors Club) to take turns throughout the year cleaning and weeding the 9/11 memorial, ask other volunteers (IE Chamber of Commerce, Knights of Cloumbus, Rotary) to take turns painting and maintaining the Gazebo and most importantly urge the school district to consider paving the top field and converting into a well lit outdoor basketball courts. This would provide recreation to the nearby families and the lights and greater use of the park might deter folks from making a mess of the place. In a nutshell, Pearl River has rallied for good causes over and over, maybe this is our Highview playground?
