UHRICHSVILLE (WJER) (Sept. 22, 2022) – Kids who participated in today’s 922 Community Pride Day have been reflecting on the experience.

Members of the sixth-grade student council at Claymont Middle School spent the morning in downtown Uhrichsville putting flowers in the planters along East Third Street. They liked the idea of using 922 Day as an opportunity to give back to their community.

“Part of student council is helping with service projects and helping with our community,” said Liberty Link. “Claymont so we thought it would be cool to help our community and make it look nicer for the citizens.”

High-schoolers Kirtas Anthony and Jace Arnold shared similar sentiments as picked up litter along South Sixth Street in Dennison.

“[I’m] just helping out and getting rid of all the trash and everything,” Anthony said.

“I just wanted to help the community,” added Arnold.

Uhrichsville Councilman Terry Engstrom supervised another group of teens cleaning up the railroad tracks along Center Street. He was glad to see so many kids out making a difference. 

“I think they said 140 kids today volunteered, and I’m just happy to be a team leader, help these girls and get this place cleaned up.”

A dozen students from Tuscarawas Central Catholic and the entire sixth-grade class at St. Mary’s took part in the effort that was organized by Uhrichsville resident Rita McPeak. The rest of the kids came from Claymont.
