A crowd of hundreds of volunteers, braving chilly weather, converged in front of ReUse Depot, 50 Madison Street in Maywood, on Saturday morning before dispersing to 45 locations throughout the village.

They were dressed to get dirty since most of them would be hauling trash, removing weeds, overturning dirt and sweeping sidewalks, among other tasks.

They were here for the 3rd Annual Village-Pride, Village-Wide event, sponsored by the Maywood Environmental and Beautification Committee in partnership with a host of local governments, businesses and community organizations.

Students, teachers, staff and faculty members at District 89 showed up in large numbers to spruce up the town, including the area surrounding Emerson School.

And hours after the event, some participants posted their pride on Facebook. Here’s a small selection of photos showing the fun (courtesy PLCCA, Debra Vine, State Rep.

  1. Great event Mayor Perkins. The town is becoming like its old self. Very clean and loving to our visitors. The kids was out in the community with responsible adults, showing great respect to the elders. Loving event!😂

    1. BETTY: That’s good. Glad that the event was a huge success. I am just hoping that with other events in the village of Maywood or just everyday routine that the citizens can come out and be very proactive in their community.
