Village of Newark streets, front yards and parks recently got cleaner and greener when more than 100 people participated in the 11th annual Community Pride Day.
Volunteers planted flowers, pulled weeds and picked up trash throughout the village. Residents and business showed their pride by cleaning and adorning their own front yards and store fronts with flowers in an effort to make the community more beautiful.
Newark Hair Salon and Spa received the Most Colorful Newark Business Exterior and 309 E. Maple Ave. won Most Colorful Newark Resident’s Front Yard.
Area businesses and organizations provided donations and support along with offering discounts for residents.
