This year we didn’t get the big piles of snow hiding the buildup of litter along the roadways, so the “Bag Ladies of the Tremperskill,” Nancy McShane and Ann Roberti, are constantly reminded that it is almost time to get out there and do something about it. We are again looking for volunteers to help in the annual endeavor of litter removal. We have chosen two days so that we can accommodate those who can only make a weekday and those who can only make a weekend. Debris removal days will be Wednesday, April 20th and Saturday, April 23rd, 9 am to 1 pm. Rain dates will be April 27th and April 30th.
Meet at 9 am at the Andes General Store with work gloves, boots, clear plastic garbage bags, your own car, a pack to carry your bags and water, and any “reacher” tools you might have. Wear a bright shirt or jacket or orange vest. You can contact Nancy at 676-3534 / firstname.lastname@example.org or Ann at 676-3643 / email@example.com if you would like to help or to get more information.
Surprisingly, participants report that this is a fun and rewarding activity so think about joining us this year! If you can’t make our organized litter pickup, perhaps you can join us in spirit by picking up on the road by your home.~
Hope to see you there! ~
