Earth Day is coming and that means it is time to plan our annual litter pickup. We are again looking for volunteers to help with this, the 10th year, our group of volunteers has worked to make Andes’ beauty shine. 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. Earth Day is Monday April 22nd so Andes Litter Pickup Days 2019 will be the Saturday, 4/20, and Wednesday 4/24, 9 am to 1 pm.  Rain dates will be Saturday (4/27) and Wednesday (May 1). 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 / njm331@catskill.net or Ann at 676-3643 / aroberti@catskill.net 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!~
