North Hempstead, NY – Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the North Hempstead Town Board teamed up with local community groups and civic leaders on May 3rd and 4th to hold nearly three dozen Community Clean-ups across the Town of North Hempstead.
This annual effort organized by the Town Board, encourages residents to get out their rakes and trash bags and help remove garbage and debris from various parks, roads, and neighborhoods in the Town of North Hempstead. The Town provided t-shirts for all participants and trash bags for the debris.
“This annual effort beautifies our Town and symbolizes the start of Spring,” Supervisor Bosworth said. “I thank all of our Town Councilpersons for engaging the community as well as our dedicated volunteers for their great work.”
