Earth Day Cleanup at RiverWinds

The Woman’s Club of West Deptford partnered with the Gloucester County Improvement Authority (GCIA) and many other local organizations for an Earth Day Cleanup on April 20th.

Special thanks to Patty Wyzykowski, our Environment Chairwoman, for organizing this event and completing all the paperwork needed for GCIA. We were blessed with a beautifully cool day and with the participation of 21 of our woman’s club members and one husband who helped to clean up and beautify the RiverWinds outlying areas and riverfront. GCIA provided a lovely continental breakfast-in-a-bag with water, hot coffee, tea and orange juice available. They also supplied each of us with a reflective vest, gloves, safety eyeglasses, bags and pickup tools for use. We collected a total of 8 full bags, plus various heavier pieces of wood, plastic and metal. Thank you to everyone who supported this event. It felt good to give back to our community.
