We did it!


Thank you the over 250 registered East Longmeadow volunteers who got up early on a Saturday to pick up nasty, old litter. I mean THESE are our people! East Longmeadow was buzzing with folks who found some of the most strange trash including a fish tank, a child's jeep, a bag of shoes, a boat & unidentifiable large metal & wood thing! Great job to everyone to helped make this a great event. The Earth thanks you.
