Cleaning Up Our Act

This Saturday (April 21), the Westport Beautification Committee and Parks & Rec Department are sponsoring Westport’s annual Green-up Day.

Sixty local organizations and community groups have been asked to pick up trash in specially designated area.

Every year, the Staples boys soccer team gets a letter. We’re assigned to Loeffler Field — where the team I coach plays our games, at Staples.

Every year, I head up there. I pick up a few stray pieces of litter on our terrace, and a couple of gum wrappers that have floated onto the grass.

It’s pretty easy. Loeffler Field is in nice shape.

But the rest of you:  get working!

(The Green-up Westport Day committees also asks every Westport citizen to clean up litter along their street or any public space. Free trash bags can be picked up on Saturday, between 9 and 11 a.m. at Jesup Green, where the Beautification Committee volunteers will conduct their own cleanup.)

Loeffler Field -- lookin' good!
