I want to say first a big thank you to all who are helping keep Derry beautiful so we can enjoy the Fall colors rather than the trash on the side of the roads. We’ve been getting a great response again this Fall with our Clean-Up Week! Many groups have signed up and already the counts for filled blue bags are in. Remember to stay safe, wear bright colors, gloves, and leave the bags when they get full and heavy. We want to know how many bags we pick up and what areas along certain roads seem to be the most needy. I live on a road maintained by the state, but it still needs to be picked up on a regular basis. On Saturday, I filled one bag just picking up in front of my property and my neighbor’s property (and across the road from us as well).
