Sunapee Green-Up plans townwide clean up

Green up. Clean up.

Saturday, May 5, 2012, is the fourth annual Sunapee Green-Up Day. Volunteers will turn out across town to pick up road-side litter from 9 to noon.

Sign up now!

You’ll find registration forms, street maps and safety tips posted at www.sunapeegreenupday.com. Forms are also at the town office building and library.

This is how it works: You gather your friends and family, and organizers give out street assignments, bags and gloves. (Suggestion: Bring sturdy work gloves.)

You can sign up early for a specific street assignment by calling Rose Batts at 603-763-4920.

Sections of Routes 103, 103B and 11 offer a vigorous work-out! Call Rose if you can help. She can also explain how to take part if you are not available on the 5th.

  • Check-in is at 8:30 a.m. at the Safety Services building, Sargent Road.
  • An appreciation picnic for volunteers starts at noon at Ben Mere Park, Sunapee Harbor. Event sponsors provide food and beverages.
  • The rain date is May 6.

Last year, 165 volunteers gathered over 500 bags of trash, which was later sorted for recyclable materials. Organizers look forward to even more participation this year!
