Pine Hill had another successful cleanup day on Saturday, June 1. Several Pine Hill families and five local groups volunteered to beautify areas within the Borough. All local businesses were also invited to spruce up their properties.
Many thanks go out to all who participated in the event, and each organized group that volunteered will receive a $300 mini grant from the Clean Communities fund. Groups participating this year included Overbrook High School Boys Cross Country, Overbrook High School Girls Cross Country, Overbrook High School Cheerleaders, National Junior Honor Society, and Pine Hill Ladies Auxiliary #286.
The volunteers, in cooperation with the Borough’s Public Works Department and Police Department, picked up close to 125 bags of trash over several hours. The Borough thanks everyone for their time and commitment to Pine Hill.
