PIC announcement

Pride in Chestnuthill (PIC) announces that it is time for the annual Chestnuthill Township Beautification Award. This honor is given to a business in the township for outstanding beautification of that property.

Previous winners not only had a clean, well-kept property, but also planted flowers. PIC members say an attractive business, attracts business.

The group was pleased to welcome several new members this past spring, including a few teens and their parents, who were very helpful with the litter cleanups. PIC also appreciates township's residents who not only clean up in front of their properties, but also their neighborhood.

There will be no PIC meeting in August but the group hopes to see more participate in PIC activities come September.
