Help Clean Up Lighthouse Cove

 G PONHAM TODAY jkhk-2_128_hr

Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse will join in Earth Day activities this year by sponsoring a clean up of the shoreline at Lighthouse Cove, from the water treatment plant to Exxon Mobil’s property, and the adjacent East Bay Bike Path.


Members of Riverside Renaissance Movement and employees and families of Suez Water will also participate. Earth Day is observed in April each year to promote environmental awareness and protection of the planet.


Community residents are encouraged to volunteer in this spring cleanup. Families, including children age 10 and older, are welcome to help clear debris from the two areas. The event will be held on Saturday, April 27 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. In the event of rain, the cleanup will be held on Sunday, April 28 from 10:00 to 12:30 a.m.


Volunteers are asked to park at the water treatment plant at 1 Crest Avenue, Riverside, off Bullocks Point Avenue. Work gloves and large paper bags for trash will be provided by the City of East Providence. All you need to bring is a commitment to a clean environment. Refreshments will be served.


Interested individuals or groups can contact Dave Kelleher at 401-433-2763 for more information and to register.
