Earth Day — Saturday, April 16 — is shaping up to be a very busy day in downtown Commerce.
It’s the day for the Commerce Fire Department’s chickenque, which brings in hundreds from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and local merchants will hold a “tent sale” of closeout merchandise in the trackside parking lot at Spencer Park.
In addition, a large body of citizen volunteers is expected to show up to pick up litter, plant flowers, power-wash sidewalks and address other aesthetic issues in the downtown.
Mark McCannon briefed the Commerce Downtown Development Authority on the plans at its March 23 meeting.
The Earth Day event downtown will be reminiscent of the 2007 work day when scores of volunteers picked up litter and (above) planted flowers, shrubs and grass in Spencer Park, which was in the redevelopment process.
