PIC to meet

Pride in Chestnuthill (PIC) will be setting up dates for spring cleanups at its meeting at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 8, at the Chestnuthill Township Municipal Building on Route 715.

Because of the relatively mild winter, the trash discarded by thoughtless drivers can be seen on the roadsides.

PIC extends its thanks to the homeowners who regularly pick up trash in front of their properties.

Since PIC is a small group of volunteers, consisting of mostly senior citizens, any help is appreciated.
