GRAFTON – In celebration of Earth Day, the Grafton Garden Club is again organizing teams of volunteers to clean up the trash along the streets, in the neighborhoods, on the school playgrounds and in the parks throughout Grafton.
Contact Helen Blazis at [email protected] and let her know which area of town you would like to clean up. Then go to the Grafton Highway Department, 64 Old Westborough Road, April 18-22 during regular business hours to pick up the bags needed and a sheet of directions.
You can pick up the trash any time during the week of April 18-22. Or you can get your bags, gloves and an instruction sheet on Grafton Common on Saturday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to noon. Either way you get your supplies. You just contact the Highway Department at 508-839-8525 and let it know where you have left your filled bags (you can leave a message).
Everyone who helps with Grafton Cleanup Day is invited to stop by the Grafton Common on Saturday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to noon for free coffee, doughnuts, bottled water and coupons redeemable for lunch.
This is the Grafton Garden Club’s 16th year sponsoring Grafton Cleanup Day.
The club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote interest in, and knowledge of, gardening; to provide scholarships for students from Grafton furthering their education in some form of gardening or horticulture; and to award grants to educators in the Grafton Public School District to be used for projects and creative efforts designed to motivate the student’s interest in plant and soil sciences, botany, horticulture and the environment.
The club is open to members from any area towns. For information, visit www.graftongardenclub.org.
