To the Editor:
A huge Thank You to all of the Marion Community for another successful Clean Up Day. From the scouts to Tabor students (led by headmaster Jay Stroud) to Marion businesses, the DPW, contributors, donors, volunteers and families, we all cleaned up the highways and byways of Marion- even those dreaded trash filled 195 on and off ramps. JOB WELL DONE.
Those of us on the committee cannot thank you all enough. Young and old from all corners of Marion turned out to put on vests (we had new small kid sizes this year donated by local businesses) and picked up our roads. Refreshments waited for us and the pile of trash grew and grew. This year we separated recycling items and that was a huge pile as well. And Gifts to Give collected a truck full of used clothing, toys, books etc.
If you want to Help Keep Marion Clean, you can stop by the Sippican Lands Trust office and pick up bags, gloves and vests. Both the girls and boys scouts will be doing this on a regular basis. Pick an area that you walk or drive by a lot and monitor it for trash – it makes a huge difference to have our roads clean and nice and shows that our community cares. Our spring clean up day is truly an example of our community coming together. Let’s keep it going year round.
Thank you to one and all,
Margie Baldwin, Marion Tree/Parks Committee
