Huntley Clean Sweeps unto Earth Day '96, By Dr. William Awe Clean Sweep coordinator As we wait for Spring to make an appearance this year, it's time to get ready for Clean Sweep '96. This community project is a chance for everyone who lives and works in Huntley to come together fro a few hours and clean up the trash and debris that has accumulated in our town over the year. We have coordinated this event with "Earth Day" which is an international day of recognition and honor of the health and life of our planet. Clean Sweep - Huntley is a project sponsored by the Huntley Chamber of Commerce & Industry in cooperation with the Village of Huntley and the Huntley Park District. Anyone who is interested in helping is invited and encouraged to participate. The goal of the project is to split volunteers into teams to cover the ends of town. We pick¬ up road side tfash and debris until we all meet back in the town square park. The event will begin at Sam on Saturday, April 20, and continue until approximately 11am. Refreshments will be provided before and after the event and water will be available through the morning. Volunteers should meet at the Huntley Park DisU'ict office at 7:30am for briefing and registration. We will divide up and begin promptly at Sam. If you would like to join in after the start time, please feel free to find a group and walk along. Last year, we picked up over 200 bags of road side trash! This is truly amazing if you consider the roads through Huntley only cover a few miles! That is like taking 100 families garbage for the-week and dumping it in the ditches - not way off in the country, but in the middle of town! And to think, this whole project was done the last two years. In other words, all that trash has accumulated in just one year! Earth Day was created to emphasize the necessity for the conservation of the world's natural resources. We have threatened these resources with our pollution of the air, water and soils. Even today, people throw u^ash out their windows as they drive through our town. Unfortunately, many people today still have not made the connection between the health of the planet and the health of the person. A clean place to live is essential for good health a well as a positive self image. You can make a difference. We have established clear evidence in this country that if people stop the pollution they make today and clean up that which they made in the past, nature will rebound with startling speed! Clean Sweep - Huntley is a great way for you to get involved - stay involved and work for a better environment. Together we can take action to preserve the fragile biological resources that are so essential to the future of Huntley and the World!
