There's going to be some "Peabody Pride in Motion" in the city this weekend.
Mayor Ted Bettencourt recently announced he has scheduled a second volunteer cleanup day for Oct. 13 to follow up on the kickoff to a community service initiative launched this spring.
As part of his effort to stir pride in Peabody back up and by extension, community service, Bettencourt announced in May he would be sponsoring a series of volunteer cleanup days and calling it "Peabody Pride in Motion."
“Last spring we had over 300 people come out and help improve the city they love,” Bettencourt said. “I think we can double that number this time around and really make a huge difference in terms of the face Peabody shows to the rest of the region.”
Volunteers this Saturday should arrive at City Hall by 9 a.m. to pick up cleaning supplies and will then fan out to targeted areas throughout the city. Pizza will be served for lunch back at the Leather City Common at 11:30 a.m.
In the event of rain, the cleanup will be rescheduled to next Saturday, Oct. 20 at 9 a.m. at City Hall.
