Beautiful t-shirt for Beautification Day

| 07 Apr 2016 | 08:02

WEST MILFORD — Beautification Day is set for Saturday, April 23, and there is a new T-shirt to commemorate it.
As is the case each year, arts students from Macopin Middle School submit artwork, hoping to be chosen for the T-shirt. This year's winner is Ashley Santangelo. Ashley designed her shirt to feature the school district's mascot, including the "WM' and recycle arrows.
Beautification and Recycle Committee Chairman Bill Weaver told the township council and the public Wednesday night that this year, in addition to having all of the original artwork submitted for the T-shirt contest hang in ShopRite up until Beautification Day, those participating for the annual clean-up detail will receive a coloring book made from all of the art submissions.
