A swarm of volunteers descended on Hemlock Gorge this morning for the annual spring cleanup of the park. It’s part of the much larger Charles River Cleanup over the whole length of the river.
Village14 regulars were well represented by me, Greg Reibman (in photo), Bob Burke and alderman Brian Yates. Greg was hoping to top his find of a $20 bill at last year’s cleanup – but came up empty handed. I, on the other hand, scored two rubber ducks and a stuffed animal.
Dunn Gharin’s donated lunch for the entire crew and the historic Stone Barn was opened for the occasion.
By noon time, the crew of 30 or 40 volunteers had cleaned the whole park, hauled a mountain of trash and Hemlock Gorge is looking better than it has in months.
