The work will be done during a six-hour period, followed by a barbecue and interfaith prayer service on the Town Hall Green
The day will begin with a dedication ceremony in First Church's 148 Beach Road parking lot, followed by work on projects from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., sponsors said. The barbecue and prayer service are planned for 5:30 p.m.
