Earth Day Clean-Up Event

This Saturday April 21, from 9 am -1 pm, the North End will be celebrating Earth Day with clean-up and beautification projects all over our neighborhood.  

This isn't just about the North End.  It's about everyone.  Join in on your block, on your street.  Work at the park near your house or help an elderly neighbor.  Let's make Middletown shine!

If you want to get out and be a part of a community project, come down to Portland St. to work on the Alondra Hernandez Community Garden, which is sprucing up a vacant lot on Portland St. in memory of a young girl who passed away suddenly last year.  We are working with volunteers from Comcast, Ballek's Garden Center and neighbors and friends to make the space a wonderful community gathering space.

For us, PRIDE Day is about more than Spring cleaning. It is about getting residents, local businesses, and friends of the North End outside together working on common goals and building relationships. We love our neighborhood and want to take time to celebrate it.  Join us and celebrate your neighborhood, too!

If you would like to sign up to work on a project, or are willing to join in on the project that needs you most you can call the NEAT office at 860-346-4845

Our Projects include:

Breaking ground at the Alondra Hernandez Memorial Garden
Breaking Ground at the Ferry Street Garden
Waking up the Erin Street garden
Miller/Bridge street park clean up
Block by block clean up and trash pick up in all of our neighborhoods

NEAT will provide the work gloves, water, tools, and trash bags.
We are excited to have volunteers from the neighborhood, Macdonough School, Comcast, The Young Democrats, and Wesleyan University. We would love to have you join us as well!

We hope to see you on Saturday!
