Palatka hosting community cleanup day

PALATKA, Fla. – The City of Palatka is hosting a community cleanup day on Saturday, May 9 along St. Johns Avenue.

The cleanup will stretch for 3.6 miles, from the riverfront west to College Road.  St. Johns Avenue will be divided into five zones, each zone having a leader responsible for overseeing volunteers during the cleanup. 

It is hoped that the zone leaders and people from the zones will take the initiative to continue to clean up in that zone in the future.  

The cleanup is set to take place from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

The organizers will be staging at Middleton Plaza located at North 19th Street and St. Johns Avenue at 8:00 a.m. for registration and assignments. 

Upon completion, refreshments will be served at Grace Fellowship Church located at 2400 St. Johns Avenue. 

If you are interested in participating or have questions about this or future cleanups, contact Palatka Pride representatives Laura Jones or Mylinh Reeves at the Palatka Police Department, (386) 329-0115.
