Message from the County Executive

Angela D. Alsobrooks

Dear Prince Georgians:

Fall is fast approaching and I am delighted to invite you to participate in our Fall 2021 “Growing Green with Pride Day” community clean-up event.

Please join me on Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. for a countywide day of beautification. We will plant trees, shrubs, and flowers to beautify our communities while picking up roadside litter and removing illegal dumping to clean our County roadways, Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we will utilize the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) best practices by implementing a grab-n-go style pickup for litter supplies and plants.

In order to keep our communities clean and aesthetically appealing, we must all work together and do our part. I plan to visit as many sites as possible on the day of the event, and I hope to see you there. If your community or organization would like to join our efforts by participating in the Fall 2021 Growing Green with Pride Day community clean-up event, I encourage you to please complete the registration form. When completing the application, please provide all of the pertinent information requested, including the name and mailing address of your community or organization’s primary contact, the expected number of volunteers, and the area and street name(s) of where your community will be planting and cleaning. The registration deadline for signing up is Friday, October 15, 2021.

Thank you for your continued support as we work together to make the Fall 2021 “Growing Green with Pride Day” a huge success for Prince George’s County. Together, we will ensure that Prince George’s County remains the Crown Jewel of Maryland.         

Sincerely,  

Angela Alsobrooks
