ESCANABA– Tomorrow is the annual Esky Cleanup. The cleanup is an effort that started about 10 years ago, with just a couple of people and now it has grown into a major event for the city.
“Tomorrow morning at 9:00 we’re going to meet,” said Mark Ammel, President, Esky Cleanup. “When I say me, I mean everybody that shows up. And for anybody that shows up that can be anybody. If you live here, great. If you’re just passing through and you want to do some manual labor for a little while, that’s cool too.”
Teams of volunteers will be assigned areas along Ludington Street, Lincoln Avenue, or Ludington Park. Tasks could be a variety of things like sweeping, pulling weeds or picking up garbage.
“If you’re ever looking for just one small way to contribute a little more,” said Ammel. “If you ever find yourself wondering if there is someway you could do a little bit more of if you just wish your community was a little bit better, this is a good first step to take to making this a better place for you to live.”
Gloves and trashbags will be provided as well as a limited number of other materials. They encourage people who have their own materials, to bring them. The cleanup runs until noon with a picnic held at Escanaba Marketplace afterwards.
