2021 Recap: Helping East Rome Get Ready for Summer! 

Emerging Leaders United gathered on May 8, 2021, a very rainy and cold day, and participated in the "Keep the Mohawk Valley Beautiful" cleanup effort!

"Keep Mohawk Valley Beautiful" is the local chapter of the "Keep America Beautiful" program.

For the third year, volunteers helped clean up garbage that had been collected through the winter days in our community. This year, they met at Pinti Field in Rome, NY, and cleaned up the east Rome area. 

Volunteers also participated in our Scavenger Hunt for a chance to win prizes! Local businesses, such as Dippin Donuts, Ferlos Bakery, and La Roma's Pizzaria donated coffee and donuts, tomato pie, and pizza. Participants enjoyed $1 off beverages at Copper City Brewing Company after the clean-up.
