Despite the rain, the Village of Newark streets, front yards and parks got cleaner and greener recently on the village’s 12th Annual Community Pride Day. Volunteers planted flowers, pulled weeds and picked up trash throughout the village on Community Pride Day, May 19th. Residents and business owners all over the village showed their pride by cleaning and adorning their own front yards and store fronts with beautiful flowers in an effort to make our community sparkle.
Congratulations to the winners of this year’s contest, ESL Federal Credit Union for “Most Colorful Newark Business Exterior” and to 405 East Avenue for “Most Colorful Newark Resident’s Front Yard”.
