GFWC Woman’s Club- Denville/Rockaway Participates in Denville PRIDE Rid Litter Day

Close to 400 volunteers came out on a lovely, but windy Saturday to participate in Denville Township’s annual PRIDE, Rid Litter Day.  The timing was perfect, as it also coincides with the 48th anniversary of Earth Day! Earth Day is an annual event created to celebrate the planet's environment and raise public awareness about pollution. The day, marked on April 22, is observed worldwide with rallies, conferences, outdoor activities and service projects.

The Denville P.R.I.D.E. (Planned Recommendations for Improving Denville's Environment) Council's Rid-Litter day is an annual spring event that draws many dozens of volunteers from numerous community organizations to demonstrate pride in the community by cleaning up patches of litter and enhance the beauty of the town.
