2018 – Spring Cleanup

One of the goals for the Marketo District BIA is to make our community cleaner and greener. To help accomplish that goal, sometimes you need to get out of the boardroom and out into the streets.

On June 01, 2018, the Marketo District BIA organized a cleanup of the neighborhood.  We reached out to local businesses, schools and organizations and managed to attract over 100 volunteers to the event, our biggest turnout ever!

We would proudly like to thank Fieldstone School, IC Savings and Lady York Foods for their donations and support. A special thank you to Silver Star Car Wash for allowing us to use their space as our HQ.

We threw a pizza party for our volunteers after the clean up, with the venue provided by Pauline Books and Media, and pizza purchased locally from Amico Chef and Camarra’s.

We hope to continue this trend of community engagement through community improvement. Hope to see you at the next one.
