NEW CONCORD Lets Pick It Up New Concord, New Condors annual community spring cleaning, has been scheduled for Saturday, April 21. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at the New Concord Elementary School pavilion on West Main Street. From there, they will be formed into teams and assigned various public areas for litter pick-up until 11:30 a.m.

Lets Pick It Up New Concord is run by the New Concord Area Arts and Recreation District (NCAARD) and the Village of New Concord. It is meant to beautify the village, foster community pride and teach litter prevention. The Village of New Concord will provide all protective equipment and trash bags.

Work will be done at stations throughout downtown New Concord, Route 40, Route 83, the New Concord Area Pool, the East Muskingum Local School Buildings, and the New Concord Reservoir. Volunteers may come on foot or park on Main Street. Those with cars will be assigned groups on the outer edges of town.

Free coffee and hot chocolate will be provided at the New Concord Elementary School pavilion when volunteers arrive at 9 a.m. and a free lunch will be served there from 11:30 a.m. to noon. NCAARD will provide food and drinks for participants.

Program leaders are asked to register by April 6. All other volunteers should register by April 13.
