Last year, more than 60 Stockbridge neighbors walked our roadsides to pick up litter to celebrate caring for our Town and Mother Earth. Collectively, we walked more than 70 miles.
Individuals, families, Waldorf School sophomore class, Laurel Hill Board members, Norman Rockwell Museum, Interlaken Gang, and accompanying pets were among the participants. Some joined for coffee/tea at Stockbridge Coffee and Tea shop in the afternoon. Non-treasures collected included cans, bottles, kleenex, cigarette butts, coffee cups, broken plastic and glass, food wrappers, scratch tickets and plastic bags.
Laurel Hill Associastion will host a reception for volunteers at Stockbridge Coffee and Tea at 3 pm on Saturday, April 21. Come and enjoy a coffee on us as our thank you for helping clean up Stockbridge!
