In a collaborative effort between East Brady and Bradys Bend, 32 local volunteers and 11 probation workers participated in The Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania on Saturday, April 28.

The event was organized by the East Brady Area Development Corporation (The Great American Cleanup of East Brady) and Brady’s Bend Township (Straighten up the Bend).

Despite a steady rain, volunteers gathered 177 large bags of trash along streets and parks in towns, along State Route 68, Seybertown Road, Kittanning Hollow Road and the Fish & Boat Commission boat launch.

In addition to litter pick-up sidewalks and streets in the business district of East Brady were swept.

A special effort was made this year to clean-up the East Brady Riverfront Park that suffered much damage during the ice jam in January.

All cleanup supplies were provided by Penn DOT. Coffee and donuts were donated by the Old Bank Deli and bottled water was provided by Farmer’s National Bank.
