    Thanks for the help

    I write to thank all of the volunteers who helped make Green Up Day such a success in Barre this past Saturday.

    From the student members of Spaulding Action For the Environment to the many volunteers, young and old, who gave up their Saturday to pitch in, thank you all.

    Our Department of Public Works employees will be picking up roadside Green Up bags this week. As hard as we try, we invariably miss a few. If you see a Green Up bag along the roadside that looks lonely and neglected, please call the manager’s office. We’ll happily find it a new home.

    Thank you again to all of you who helped make Barre beautiful. Barre rocks.
