Neighbors from the Lakeside neighborhood and beyond are invited to a special clean-up event Saturday.

Sponsored by the Mount Pleasant Police Department and several local businesses and organizations, this first Lakeside clean-up is being organized to bring residents together to improve the neighborhood, one block at a time.

Neighbors will meet at 9 a.m. Saturday at Gregg Chapel Methodist Episcopal, 2237 Howe Street, and enjoy coffee and pastries before heading out. Pizza and other refreshments supplied by Wells Brothers Pizza will complete the day.

Some cleaning supplies will be provided, but residents should come prepared with gloves and some garbage bags.

For more information, call MPPD Officer Nicole Schiro at 752-6490, or Melissa Kaprelian-Becker at 939-8679.
