Cleaning Cruz Bay

An effort to spruce up downtown Cruz Bay next weekend is expected to include business people, government employees and residents.  Visitors will also be welcome.  The fun begins at 8 a.m. in Cruz Bay’s Frank Powell Park.

The idea for the effort, dubbed St. John Pretty, was offered by Winston Bennett, the owner of several island restaurants. With the backing of the island Administrator, Leona Smith, the weekend’s work is to include painting curbs, power washing streets, and minor landscaping chores.

Areas to get attention included Sprauve School, Cruz Bay Park, and Mongoose Junction, according to reports published by the St. John Source and Virgin Islands Daily News.

The cleanup was originally schedule for last weekend.  But, even ‘island time’ affects good deeds, too.
