Beach Cleanup in Honor of Earth Day

Volunteers sought  for Town Beach and Chaffee Park cleanup

By Janet Eklund

Volunteers are being sought for Town Beach and Chaffee Park cleanup days, on Saturday, April 20, and Saturday, April 27. Volunteers can show up anytime between 9:00 and 10:00 AM on those days with leaf and garden rakes. 

Dress for the weather and bring footwear for raking the water’s edge. April on the beach is windy. The piles of debris will be picked up by the Highway Department.

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated globally on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The Town Beach cleanup days are one way to participate in the many Earth Day activities happening in Andover. For more information, please contact Janet Eklund, 603 735-5375.
