The Edgewood Waterfront Preservation Association (EWPA), Pawtuxet Village Association (PVA) Annual Stillhouse Cove Salt Marsh and Park and Pawtuxet Park Clean-Up.
Spring Clean Up
April 23, 9-11 AM
We had perfect weather and a great crowd for our Stillhouse Cove cleanup today, hosted in partnership with Save the Bay and the Pawtuxet Village Association. Close to 100 people worked picking up garbage and pruning vegetation while at the same time connecting with neighbors and friends. Over (insert number) pounds of refuge was collected and Cranston Mayor Ken Hopkins joined in himself.
EWPA President Barbara Rubine received a proclamation from the State of Rhode Island delivered by Rep McNamara and Mayor Hopkins, thanking the organization for all of the work done over the years to nurture and grow this beautiful waterfront space. Other notable attendees included Councilwoman Vargas, Senator Miller, Councilwoman Marino, Congressional candidate Joy Fox and EWPA Founding Board member Hy Goldman.
There were many conversations about how far the EWPA has come over the years, including stories about how way back in 1996, one neighbor used his car to tow the trees out of the cove area and one time a tow truck had to be called to help!
Thank you to everyone who came out.
