CTAs and CVBA Ambassadors Clean by the ‘Jig’ in May

The Franklin County Visitors Bureau (FCVB) along with Franklin County Certified Tourism Ambassadors (CTA) and Cumberland Valley Business Alliance (CVBA) Ambassadors invite the public to join them for a community clean-up event called, “Clean by the “Jig”” from 3pm – 5pm on May 16th, 18th and 24th.

The community clean-up will include trash collection on the Rail Trail situated along the Conococheague Creek in downtown Chambersburg. The event will kick-off at Chambers Fort Park located at the Rosedale parking lot (next to Avacado Cafe) on 40 Spring St.

Additionally, teams will have the option to head to Falling Spring Presbyterian Church where Chambersburg’s founding Father, Ben Chambers grave site is located. At the cemetery, teams lead by experienced CTAs will have the opportunity to spray headstones to remove algae and other build up to reveal the details of the graves to the public once again. Work done at the cemetery is perfect for those who want to help but may have physical limitations or do not wish to collect trash.

Each event will conclude with an after party at a nearby brewery. The first 25 registrations for each clean-up day will receive a $5 voucher to use that evening.

After party locations are:

  • May 16th: Liquid Art Beer Stube
  • May 28th: TBC Brewing Company
  • May 24th: GearHouse Brewing Co.

All are family friendly and have great food, craft beverages and non-alcoholic options available.

CTAs and CVBA Ambassadors will receive a special discount at some of the after party locations.
