2009 Fall Cleanup a Success!

All for one and one for all! Annual Fall Cleanup 2009 a success! ending with chocolate, blueberry and choc. chip muffins and a box of Joe!

18 volunteers from 11 households cleaned the state public access boat ramp, Manchaug Road from Central Turnpike to Torrey Road, Torrey to Oak St, Shore Road, and Lackey Road as well as the lake shoreline areas which were not cleaned during the spring cleanup event. Whew!

Covering the Shoreline and lake areas:

The public boat ramp:

Along Shore Road and the conservation land:

Also a few invasive weeds not picked up during the Weed Cleanup a few weeks ago also made there way to the truck!

Along Manchaug Road:

Strange finds included a distributor cap and a part to a high tech weather machine or something!

Great job everyone! It was a pleasure working with all of you – we sure covered a lot of area.

(I also was told the story about last week’s boating accident from two eyewitnesses. We’re working on getting the pics, video and story to you via the blog! Stay tuned.)
