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 and we’d love to have more help.

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 2024 will be Wednesday April 17th with a rain date of the 24th and Saturday, April 20th with a rain date of April 27th.

We’ll meet at 9 am at the Andes General Store – bring 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. Please RSVP to Ann if you can come and help –  Don’t hesitate to email, or call Ann at 845-676-3643 if you have any questions.

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!~
