On Saturday, April 16, 2005, members of the Iona College Men and Women’s Swimming and Diving team took part in a community wide initiative called "Renew North Avenue Day". Joined by other New Rochelle and Iona Community members, the Swimming and Diving team spent the morning picking up trash along the sidewalks, in parking lots, and even within surrounding parks on North Avenue, from Eastchester Road to the New Rochelle Transportation Center. The purpose of this initiative was to enhance and maintain the New Rochelle environment for students, residence, business owners, and visitors.

This clean-up effort was planned in conjunction with Earth Day and National Volunteer Week. For more information please visit
