On October 4th, 2012 East Arlington Renewal celebrated their 30th anniversary. This dedicated group of citizens joined together in 1982 to host a East Arlington cleanup events which ultimately led to their formation. Today, members and supporters of EAR continue to organize neighborhood beautification efforts and form partnerships which serve to enhance safety and overall quality of life for all residents of East Arlington.
Last year EAR launched their See Litter Pick it Up campaign aimed at reducing the city’s litter index and beautifying the community. East Arlington Renewal’s President, Sue Phillips, spoke to the Keep Arlington Beautiful Board at their June 2013 meeting and asked for their support in taking the See Litter Pick it Up campaign to all areas of Arlington through connectivity, cross promoting and helping to spread the word in organizing community cleanup events.
On October 26th, East Arlington Renewal will be hosting another See Litter Pick it Up campaign at Carl Knox Park. If you or your organization would like to assist with this community event, please visit theevents page or email us.
