A2Y Chamber Event: Ypsilanti P.R.I.D.E. Day 2016
Ypsilanti P.R.I.D.E. (People Restoring Image and Developing the Environment) Day is a community-wide event intended to foster community pride and encourage local business growth by creating a clean and welcoming environment. It began as a class project by the 1995 graduating class of Leadership Ypsilanti, an experiential learning program sponsored by the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Regional Chamber, and is now sponsored by the A2Y Chamber Foundation.
500-1200 volunteers spend the morning picking up litter, painting, planting flowers and otherwise beautifying the Ypsilanti community. After the clean-up, volunteers are treated to lunch and entertainment at the Post-Event Celebration which will be located at the Whittaker Road Library located at 5577 Whittaker Rd, Ypsilanti, MI 48197.
