Big Event 2013

Armed with rakes, paintbrushes and trash bags, a record 800 Salisbury University students signed up to participate in the ninth annual Big Event community cleanup day on Saturday, April 20. Following opening ceremonies with SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach, Salisbury Mayor and SU alumnus Jim Ireton, and Salisbury City Council President Jake Day, student crews dispersed across Salisbury to help campus neighbors and beautify public spaces held by the City and non-profit agencies.

They worked well into the afternoon at locations including Salisbury City Park, Salisbury Urban Ministries and the Religious Society of Friends Meeting House. They also assisted, by request, area residents with household chores, such as raking leaves, cleaning attics, painting and other maintenance projects.

Members of the Student Government Association and Dr. Dane Foust, vice president of student affairs, applauded everyone who turned out to "give back" to the community.
