Students clean up Uhrichsville and Dennison on 922 Day

UHRICHSVILLE — In celebration of “922 Day,” which has been renamed “922 Community Pride Day,” more than 125 student volunteers from Claymont High School, Claymont Middle School, Tuscarawas Central Catholic and sixth-graders from St. Mary’s Elementary will pick up trash and recyclables, weeding, sweeping and painting curb strips and performing other community service duties in Uhrichsville and Dennison on Thursday.

The rain date will be Friday.

Teamwork projects are determined by the mayor of each community. Local churches have also been asked to identify residents who need help. Trash cans, trash bags, gloves, safety vests and goggles and hand sanitizer are provided by each city government.

There will be over 15 different teams of six to 10 students on these tasks. Each team will have an adult supervisor in carrying out their community work project.

Students will receive a starter breakfast and lunch (both at Claymont Stadium). Additionally, each student volunteer will receive a participation t-shirt with a special “922 Pride Community Clean-up” logo.

There are several sponsors for the event including: Barnett Realtors, St. Mary’s Altar Society, Ember Home Care, Amy Myers of Barnett Realtors, Alban Title, Dennison Rotary, Mayor of Dennison Greg DiDonato and Rita McPeak of Clay Capital Development.

Claymont High School’s video production group plans to capture an aerial drone view of the more than 125 volunteers wearing their orange “922 Community Pride” t-shirts on the stadium football field, as well as film a video of the job. teams throughout the morning.
