Earth Day is coming and that means it is time to plan our annual litter pickup. We are again looking for volunteers to help in this: the 11th year our group of volunteers has worked to make Andes’ beauty shine. We will again be picking up on two days so that we can accommodate those who can only make a weekday and those who can only make a weekend. Andes Litter Pickup Days 2020 will be Wednesday April 15th and Saturday April 18th from 9 am to 1 pm.  Rain dates will be Thursday, April 16th and the following Saturday, April 25th.

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. ~
