[Attachment] Eastern Connecticut State University will host its 11th annual 'Town Pride, Town Wide' community beautification event on April 27. Activities will take place at various project sites across the Windham region from 9 a.m.-noon. with a community gathering on the Hurley Hall patio on the Eastern campus from noon-1 p.m.

Eastern's Center for Community Engagement (CCE) will deploy more than 200 Eastern student volunteers to more than 18 project sites during Town Pride, Town Wide.

The Town Pride, Town Wide program started as a way to give Eastern students an opportunity to work closely with local community members and agencies to leave their mark on Willimantic. The event is a collaboration between the CCE and the Town of Windham.

The impact Town Pride, Town Wide has on the community surpasses its overarching goal of beautification. 'Every year there will always be more weeds to pull, more flowers to plant, more mulch to spread, but the bonds and relationships that are built throughout the community last a lifetime,' said CCE Director Kim Silcox. 'Town Pride, Town Wide offers Eastern students and local community members alike the unique opportunity to take pride and ownership in our community.'

'Town Pride, Town Wide is exceptional in the way that it creates a truly special partnership between Eastern and the Willimantic community through beautifying the area in which we live,' said Sarah Tricarico '18, special events coordinator for the CCE and a recent Eastern graduate. 'It could not be possible without the willingness and enthusiasm of our community partners and students.'

For more information, contact Silcox at silcoxk@easternct.edu or (860) 465-4426 or Tricarico at tricaricos@easternct.edu or (860) 465-5158.
