From Elaine and Eric, Plymouth GreenUp coordinators
We are gearing up for yet another 1st Saturday morning in May cleanup of Plymouth roadsides. This year, we have the debris of that naughty Irene to deal with besides the usual business of roadside trash. Please plan to meet back at the Plymouth Municipal Building at noon for the annual potluck when we hope to raise discussion about the larger messes in town. We would like you all to be present for the group photo which gets published in The Vermont Standard. The photo shoot will be @ noon or so. Then, we eat and talk. More details of the day:
Green Up Day falls on the first Saturday in May, the 5th. Once again, Plymouth will be participating in this statewide event. We will begin the day @8 AM, meeting behind the Plymouth Municipal Building. Sign in, pick up your official GreenUp bags, and establish your route. We will give you an official GreenUp t-shirt or hat, some available in organic cotton, as well as a safety vest. Please wear sturdy boots/shoes and gloves and carry a water bottle. Also, we need some pickup trucks to haul the collected trash back to the Transfer Station. Please plan to join us back at the Municipal Building at noon for a pot luck lunch (beverages provided) and brain storming session. Our primary cleanup efforts will focus on town roadsides. If there is interest shown in cleaning up Irene debris, we hope to form plans for clean up projects beyond Green Up day.
Please plan to come to the pot luck, enjoy a great lunch, and share your stories. If you Green Up before Green Up day, kindly let us know the roads you have cleaned up so that we don’t send volunteers out to roads that don’t need attention.
