Members of the Town Beautification Committee have high hopes for the growth of the B-Annual Town Clean-up Day. But they were very pleased with the participation and logistics for their first event.
More than 20 volunteers helped to clean up trash in several Tewksbury neighborhoods on Saturday. The volunteers gathered at Tewksbury Country Club, received their equipment and drove out to their assigned clean-up locations. Dozens of lawn and leaf bags filled with trash ended up piled next to a dumpster at the DPW garage on Whipple Road, ready for disposal.
"I think I'd have to say it was a success," said Jackie Stone, chairwoman of the Beautification Committee. "We were able to clean-up about half of the areas that had been identified by by the DPW as needing some help."
While this first event took place in the summer, the committee is planning twice-a-year Clean-up Days in the Spring and Fall. This will make it easier for youth groups from schools, churches and scouting groups to plan for the events and participate.
Among the neighborhoods targeted were Old Boston Road/Main Street, Maple Avenue/East Street, Pleasant Street, Pond Street near the DAV Hall, and South Street out toward the Wilmington Line.
