Why is Park Cleanup Day So Important to You?

"You Said It" is a daily segment featuring opinions from Cinnaminson residents and visitors on current issues facing our township.

A park cleanup day was held over the weekend and hundreds of Cinnaminson residents helped beautify the township's seven parks. 

We asked some residents: Why did you decide to come out for park cleanup day? And, why is it so important to do something like this in the community?

You Said It is a new video feature on Patch, showing you the names and faces of our residents and what they think about certain topics. Check back each day during the lunch hour for a new video. A new topic will be unveiled each week. Leave your comments here!

Christine Turner is a classic example of an outstanding resident who went the extra mile to help her fellow Cinnaminson neighbors by organizing this event. People stepping up to make a difference when they see something that needs to be done show what can be achieved when we devote the time needed and all work together for the betterment of our township. This was one of the greatest township wide community efforts involving over 200 hundred volunteers in a long time. The success of this involved many of our residents, local groups & business, and Cinnaminson Township Parks & Recreation Department all working together. On the behalf of Cinnaminson Township, I commend these people as well as everyone else who took time to help with our Township Wide Park Clean Up Day. Don Brauckmann, Deputy Mayor/Director of Parks & Recreation

Don, I couldn't have said it better. This day could not have been the huge success it was without the hard work of so many of our residents. Words can not express my sincere thanks to everyone!
