Green Up Day


On the first Saturday in May, Cavendish will join hundreds  of communities throughout Vermont to support the 48-year-old tradition of picking up roadside trash accumulated over the winter.  Green Up Day is a fun volunteer opportunity that unites communities, raises environmental consciousness and results in litter-free roads and town spaces for us all.  Thanks to moving the date to Saturdays, town-wide volunteer participation has climbed steadily in recent years. No special gear is required to join this family friendly event, just the desire to pitch in and clean up unsightly litter.  Come to the Proctorsville Green with friends and family on Saturday May 5 to pick up special green trash bags, protective gloves and your road assignment.  The big sweep begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at noon with a free town-sponsored barbecue on the Proctorsville Green, where hot dogs and hamburgers will be on the grill.  In case of a downpour, Green Up Day will be on Saturday May 6, same time, same place.  For more information call Diane McNamara at the Town Office at 226-7292.  Join the thousands of Vermonters who care enough to keep our state beautiful by pitching in to gather the trash that has been pitched out!
