George Street Cleanup

Working for Worcester volunteers — mostly college students — will bring rakes, brooms, and shovels to help get winter debris off George Street, Worcester, in preparation for 7HW’s George Street Bike Challenge for Major Taylor. The uphill time trial is set for July 24. The April cleanup is a chance to get into the nooks and crannies before the vegetation grows in.

Many hands will make light work at the April 9 cleanup, and refreshments will be provided. If you register here as a volunteer you’ll get an email asking you to sign and submit a liability waiver, and you’ll  get breakfast and a T-shirt at the kick-off rally on Worcester Common (behind City Hall, 455 Main St.). Check-in opens at 8:30 a.m. and the rally starts at 9:00. Leave the Common about 9:45 to walk to George Street, where work will commence; or meet us at George Street at 10:00. Bring work gloves. Pizza will be delivered to George Street at 12:30 p.m.
