The East Rochester CleanSweep

Our ER CleanSweep -- now in its 11th year -- is an event sponsored by the Town/Village of East Rochester and the ER Chamber, in which volunteers clean up ER, promote green solutions, and participate in enriching the community. A huge thank you to everyone who participated in, sponsored, or supported us on a rainy morning to help CleanSweep our beautiful little village!
Volunteers included groups from the ER Alumni Foundation, Lilac Family Dental/Flower City Dental, ER Cub Scout Pack 67, the St. Nicholas Society, ER Rotary, and New Life Baptist Church, and these individuals: Chris Argento, Connor Ash, Denise Ash, Dan Bates, Jim Cavalieri, Al Cohen, Melissa Cohen, Nick Cohen, Lafayette Eaton, Rosanne Fabi, Joe Fisher, Mark Florack, Kori Hamilton, Joseph Hanss, Richard Hanss, Kathleen Lenzo, Dennis Leo, Anita Mance, Terry Miller, Neil Hoselton, Taylor Page, Kaitlin Pontzer, Anthony Ricci, Chris Rohr, Jake Sciotti, Ed and Karen Smith, Linda Snyder, Jason Swarts, Jonas Williams, and Meghan Williams.

Ways a Business, Club, or Individual Can Participate:
• CleanSweep volunteers: Have your business, clubs, teams, family, and friends help clean ER streets and parks the day of the event. Volunteers (who must be at least 10 years old or have completed fourth grade) will meet in the Community Center (Eyer Building, corner of Main and West Commercial) the morning of the event. All volunteers will receive a CleanSweep t-shirt to keep!
• CleanSweep scrap metal collection: The ER Parks Committee will again be collecting any scrap metal ("from a coat hanger to a wrecked car and everything in between!") in the Eyer Building parking lot during the event. This project helps maintain and replace the trees in our four parks! For more information (or to arrange for a larger pickup, or if you're unavailable to drop off that morning), contact Mark McDermott at email@example.com or 586-7756.
• Sponsorship opportunities are available! Sponsors' logos will be displayed on the t-shirts and promotional materials.
