Where We live: Evans


The second annual neighborhood cleanup for the Lake Erie Beach area in the Town of Evans will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Volunteers will mobilize at the Lake Erie Beach Fire Hall, 9483 Lakeshore Road, which will also serve as a drop-off location for the trash collected.

The cleanup will focus on vacant lots, parks, recreational areas and streets that are major thoroughfares in the Lake Erie Beach area, as well as commercial locations along Old Lakeshore Road.

“We are starting to see some positive changes in the Lake Erie Beach community,” said Lori Szewczyk Director of Community Development for the Town of Evans. “The clean-up is meant to encourage community pride among the residents of Lake Erie Beach that will stretch beyond this one-day event.”

The cleanup is organized by the Lake Erie Beach Neighborhood Revitalization Task Force, with help from the Town of Evans and Lake Erie Beach Fire Co.

The task force is still looking for volunteers. Anyone interested in participating can contact Lori Szewczyk at 549-3915 or by email at
