Canal Clean Sweep 2017

Volunteer for Earth Day at Fairport’s Annual Canal Clean Sweep!

This year the Fairport Perinton Partnership for a Better Community and Senator Rich Funke team up with the NYS Canal Corporation, and Parks and Trails as local sponsors of the statewide Canal Clean Sweep 2017 event on Earth Day, Saturday April 22, from 9am-12pm. Efforts focus on cleaning up public spaces throughout the central business and canal districts of the village. Every year volunteers ranging from 4 to 84 years old, as individuals or with civic and youth groups, participate. Participants are asked to meet at the Box Factory Pavilion at 9am. Bring your own broom, flat shovel, and rake, and join your Fairport and Perinton neighbors to benefit the Canal and community by giving the village a thorough cleaning.

Event coordinators include Clean Sweep event chair Cindy Hunt, Kevin Knapp of Senator Funke’s Office, Scott Winner of the Fairport Partnership for a Better Community, Adopt-A-Trail coordinator Ian Winner, and Joel Cuminale of Turning Point Signs and Design.
