Cruz Bay Cleanup Starting at 8 a.m. Saturday

Oct. 26, 2007 — St. John will get a spruce up Saturday, thanks to a St. John Pretty event sponsored by the St. John Administrator's Office.
"I look forward to a productive day as we take our first step together in beautifying St. John," said St. John Administrator Leona Smith, according to a news release issued Friday.
Participants will paint curbs and taxi-stand areas, power wash streets, remove trash, rake scattered leaves and brush, cut back overgrown tree branches, clear walkways and rake beaches. All work will be done at Cruz Bay Park, Mongoose Junction Shopping Center, Julius E. Sprauve School and on sidewalks, walkways and beaches in the Cruz Bay area.
Additional cleanups are planned, with the St. John Pretty group hoping to work at least one Saturday a month cleaning up areas around St. John.
Participants in the clean up will come from the Westin Resort and Villas, Caneel Bay Resort, Sirenusa, Hai 2, V.I. National Park, Grande Bay, Stone Masonry, Winston Bennett, Alfredo Landscaping, Trayser Construction, the local government, West Indies Co., Island Getaways, the governor's office and the private sector.
"I am so pleased at the cooperative effort of the public and private sectors in participating on this important initiative," Smith said.
Participants will gather at 8 a.m. at Cruz Bay Park. To volunteer, call Smith at 776-6484.
