In honor of the 48th annual Earth Day, the Frantz One-Room Schoolhouse, in cooperation with Eldred Township, will be hosting a PennDot “Great American Clean-Up in Pa” event on April 22nd
The event is a roadside clean-up of Eldred Township’s Church Road followed by a “Celebration of Community” at the 1855 one-room school.
Volunteers can show up at the school (485 Church Road) from 11:30 am on to pick-up a plastic trash bag & latex gloves. They can return their collected trash to the school and join in the festivities. Event organizer Renee Giordano said “No one is required to collect trash to join in the celebration. Our main point is to build community relationships and support cooperative efforts. Earth Day would be a great time to visit the 1855 school to look at the exhibits and discuss the history of the township.” She added, “Anyone who lives on Church Road can provide their own trash bag, if they like, and collect along the road as they make their way to the school, rather than come to the school first.”
Volunteers are reminded, just like any other volunteer doing roadside clean-ups, to follow some basic safety rules.
1. Always stay alert and face in the direction of traffic.
2. Stay in the off-road area.
3. When you are crossing the road stay in a straight line of vision with traffic.
4.. Be aware, drivers do not expect to see people along the road, you will be a distraction, do not make abrupt moves.
5. Do not work with partners on both sides of the road at the same time.
6. Wear light or bright-colored clothing and appropriate footwear
