State Rep. Melissa Ziobron (R-34) and State Sen. Art Linares (R-33) invite area residents to join them for a community cleanup of Sunrise State Park from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013.
Area residents are asked to come dressed to help pick up litter and debris from the park. Delicious chili, soup and sandwiches will be provided to volunteers courtesy of Moodus Sportsmen’s Club following the cleanup.
“This is a unique hands-on opportunity for our community to take part in the long-awaited effort to clean up this landmark,” Rep. Ziobron said. “Many of us have fond memories of the property when it was a successful resort. Coordinating community support will be critical to establish a Friends group, which will advocate for the Park long into the future.”
“This is a great opportunity to pick up the park, and the more helping hands, the better,” Sen. Linares said. “Please tell friends and neighbors about this cleanup. We look forward to seeing you on the 27th. In one afternoon, we can make a tremendous impact.”
The legislators’ Sep. 25 meeting to discuss the future of the property attracted more than 80 residents.
