A few hours of time and some sweat equity is all it takes to make downtown Dover look it’s best for the upcoming summer season.
The Dover Pride Clean Up event starts with a pancake breakfast served by the Kiwanis Club at 8 a.m. in the Cochecho Mill Courtyard, 421 Central Ave. From there, hundreds of volunteers, with help from the City’s of Dover’s Community Services Department, will rake, prune, sweep, mulch, weed, paint and plant their way through multiple sites in the downtown area. Wentworth Greenhouses donates plants for the planters in the downtown core, which volunteers will help install. The event finishes with a pizza lunch back at the Mill Courtyard sponsored by Kendall Pond Pizza. Bottled waters and sodas will be provided by Seacoast Coca-Cola.
All participants should bring gardening supplies, if available, including gloves, brooms, rakes, wheelbarrows and other gardening hand tools they may have from home. Other supplies are available on site at the mill courtyard and at the clean-up locations.
As always, community volunteers are the key to the success of the project. Individuals, groups, or families can spend just an hour, or come for the entire morning. Locations will be set up by Dover Main Street. Click to register below!
