Letter: Thanks to volunteers for Pownal Greenup
To the Editor:
I would like to thank all of the volunteers who went out last Saturday, May 4, to clean up the roads in Pownal. We collected over 240 bags of trash along with 45 tires, four children's car seats, one refrigerator (pulled out of Barber's Pond), three couches, four mattresses and a multitude of other items thrown along our roadsides..
I also want to express my gratitude to TAM for the use of the dumpster, Stewart's Shops for providing ice cream vouchers for our hidden house winners, Town Clerk Julie Weber for assistance in printing flyers for the students, and importantly the American Legion Post 90 for permitting us to use the pavilion for our picnic lunch and allowing us to place the dumpster in the parking lot.
I would certainly be remiss if I didn't thank the Pownal Proud group for setting up the Road Steward program. Pownal residents are encouraged to join the growing number of citizens who agree to serve as Road Stewards by doing periodic litter pickup on their favorite town roads. Those interested should email Dave Low at firstname.lastname@example.org or Megan Randall at email@example.com.
Again, thanks to all who participated.
Thomas C. Shuey,
The writer is coordinator of Pownal Greenup Day and supervisor of the Pownal Transfer Station.
