Many Helping Hands Make
Bromley Community Cleanup a Success
One Hamilton neighborhood got a
head start on spring cleaning with some help from the Mayor, the CYO of Mercer
County and a host of community volunteers.
On Saturday, March 28th,
some 65 volunteers turned out for what was described as the most successful
clean-up in the Bromley Neighborhood Spring Clean Up Day’s four year
history. The volunteers included children
from CYO Bromley Royal Mentoring Group, members of CYO Bromley Teen Center,
Rider University students and members of the 217 Church of Hamilton who joined
with Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede, Hamilton Director of Health,
Recreation, Seniors and Veterans Services, Marty Flynn, members of Hamilton’s
Public Works Department and employees of the CYO of Mercer County, which
operates Hamilton’s Bromley Neighborhood Civic Center,
“As someone who grew up in the Bromley neighborhood, I was delighted to
see this record turnout of volunteers taking an active role in helping to keep
the neighborhood clean and our local parks beautiful,” said
Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede.
Volunteers helped to clear litter
from parks located within the Bromley neighborhood of Hamilton Township, as
well as clean debris from Bromley neighborhood properties with the help of some
of the properties’ owners.
The effort was aided by donations
of equipment from Kucker-Haney Paints, Home Depot, Ace Hardware of Mercerville and
1st Constitution Bank. Additionally, the
CYO of Mercer County staff at the Bromley Neighborhood Civic Center provided
lunch for the volunteers following their hard work.
“Our entire CYO team at the Bromley Neighborhood Civic Center is
dedicated to programs, like this clean-up, which seek to enrich the lives of residents
in Hamilton Township and specifically the Bromley neighborhood. We encourage and welcome residents to find
out more about all of the programs and services that are offered at the Bromley
Neighborhood Civic Center,” said Tom Mladenetz, Executive
Director of the CYO of Mercer County.
