April 20 - StagHill Clean Up
We will continue our efforts to cleanup up Stag Hill on this day. There is more than an abundance of tires and other trash that have been illegally dumped in MEVO’s very own town. Let’s make Mahwah and our world a cleaner place by going up to Stag Hill to remove some of this pollution. Now that the weather is warmer and the snow has melted, it will be much easier to locate and take out this trash. The weather this time of year is very unpredictable, so dress accordingly and we recommend you wear boots because it can be quite muddy. Gloves and trash pickers will be supplied. We will meet at Ramapo Reservation at 11am and commute to Stag Hill from there. We will be back down before 2:00pm. For questions, you can email David at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 201- 916-4530. To RSVP for this event, send an email to email@example.com with your name, age, phone number and the subject line “Stag Hill Cleanup.” You can also RSVP through our Facebook.
April 27 - Earth Day Event
Catherine Ave, a street in Mahwah has vacant filled with garbage and debris. MEVO now has the opportunity to restore to its environmental roots. A house once stood here, and though it is gone, it’s wreckage remains. We have already done one cleanup here, but in order to be ready to have trees planted on it this Summer, the lot still needs a lot more work! Let’s celebrate this past Earth Day by making Mahwah a better place! We will be meeting at Catherine Ave in Mahwah NJ. at 11:00am and we will finish up before 2:00pm. Gloves and tools will be supplied and as always, we encourage you to wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty. For questions, you can email David at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 201- 916-4530. To RSVP for this event, send an email to email@example.com with your name, age, phone number and the subject line “Catherine Ave Cleanup.” You can also RSVP through our Facebook.
