Cleaning up Connellsville: Outstanding efforts

| Friday, Aug. 2, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

Volunteers throughout Connellsville are joining forces and “cleaning up” the town.

In recent weeks, two organizations have conducted cleanup efforts in different sections of Connellsville. For the past several weeks, volunteers (including some members of the Connellsville Falcons football team and other youth organizations) have joined Believe In Connellsville organizers in weeding, picking up litter and basically cleaning up the downtown area.

In addition, Sustainable Connellsville volunteers have been doing some cleanup along the trail area.

Their work deserves recognition. Indeed, a clean town is an inviting town.

Connellsville hosts many summertime visitors who pass through town on the bike trail, or stop on their way to another destination, or return home for a visit. As such, it's important that our community look and feel inviting.

We applaud these volunteers — young and old — who not only give up their time for these beautification efforts but also in some cases use their own resources.

We are a strong community, and we should show our pride in where we live.

We encourage other groups, organizations, clubs, individuals and families to join in these cleanup efforts. The organizations will welcome your help and your support.

With each volunteer effort to improve our town, Connellsville gets stronger.
