LITTER PICK-UP – April 2023

By Ann Roberti

Volunteers wanted for the 15th Anniversary Andes Litter Pickup!

Spring is coming, and that means it is time to plan our annual litter pickup. A small group of dedicated volunteers has been cleaning roads in Andes for many years now and we’d love to have more help.

This year, 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 2023 will be Wednesday, April 26th with a rain date of the 27th and then Saturday the 29th with a rain date of the 30th.

We’ll meet at 9 am at the Andes General Store – bring/wear work gloves, sturdy footwear, your own car, a pack to carry your bags and water, and any “reacher” tools you might have. We do have some to lend, thanks to the local Rotary Club! Wear a bright shirt or jacket or orange vest. We’ll also have yellow vests for those who don’t have their own. You can contact Nancy at 676-3534 / or Ann at 676-3643 / if you would like to help or to get more information.

Each year people report that this is a fun and rewarding activity, so think about joining us!   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!~
