The group needs help for spring cleanup days, which members will discuss and set up at the meeting.

PIC is a small volunteer group which has been beautifying Chestnuthill Township for over 10 years. There are many residents who cannot come out with the group, but pick up in their own neighborhoods and PIC is thankful for them. Spring cleanups are coming soon.
