On May 11, 2013, the City of Three Rivers and the Downtown Development Authority will be hosting the Three Rivers Community Pride Day, formerly known as “Wash Down Day.” Our goal is to expand the honored tradition of washing down our Downtown area, and we invite you to partner with us.
Last year we had 40 volunteers, but with your help, our goal is to have over 100 volunteers all working together on the same day for the same common purpose to better our community. The traditional flower planting, weed pulling, replacing mulch, and trash clean-up will continue. This year we are expanding to include repainting the old downtown light posts, repainting fences and bridges, cleaning the ponds at Scidmore Park, and clearing the Riverwalk. As you can see, we need YOU!
The day will begin with donuts and refreshments at the Carnegie Center at 9:00 a.m. From there, groups will be dispersed to specific locations. Most projects will only last 2-3 hours, but any time that you can give will be put to good use.
Let us know if you’ll be able to provide volunteers or supplies needed for that day. “WE ARE TR” t-shirts will also be available for purchase. We encourage you to come out and show your community pride by wearing something purple.
A Volunteer Form can be filled out online and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or downloaded and sent to Three Rivers City Hall, 333 W. Michigan Avenue, Three Rivers, MI 49093. Contact Melissa Bliss at 269-273-1632 with any questions or for a detailed list of project needs.
Thank you for your support!
