Mayor Mironov stated, “The Adopt-A-Spot program is a tremendous success thanks to the wonderful participants who volunteer to land a hand to help their community. We are proud of the participants’ efforts to keep East Windsor litter-free. Adopt-A-Spot is a great program in not only ensuring public areas of our community are well-maintained, but also has been a wonderful educational tool for teaching our young people social responsibility and community pride.” Mayor Mironov continued, “The Adopt-A-Spot program involves hundreds of young people and, each year, continues to be a success, instilling an awareness of the value and satisfaction of giving back to the community to our next generation of residents, while also simultaneously helping to support the activities and service of these worthwhile youth groups.”
