In addition, current and former Clearfield Borough Council members cleaned up the river bank of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River along South Front Street between Cherry Street and “the Point” in Clearfield.
The weekend before Beautification Day, the Girl Scouts from the Clearfield-Curwensville Service Unit No. 2670 and their families completed a beautification project in the area of Upper and Lower Witmer Parks.
Wagner says, “The CRC is proud to work with our Clearfield business employees, residents, groups and students and to empower them to benefit the community through Beautification Day.
