Vermont’s Green Up Day, first launched in 1970 by Governor Deane Davis, is a special day when thousands of volunteers statewide go out into their communities to clean up litter from roadsides and public places. Always the first Saturday in May, Green Up Day is this Saturday, May 4.
Shelburne resident Alice Lissarrague is again heading up the Green Up activities in town. As in past years, individuals, groups, and neighborhoods will be sprucing up the roadsides, paths, trails, sidewalks, and shorelines of Shelburne.
Please help keep Shelburne tidy by picking up trash along the roadsides. Green Up bags can be picked up at the Shelburne Supermarket or the Shelburne Town Clerk’s Office. Residents are encouraged to grab a bag (or three) and hit the ground Saturday morning to gather trash and debris around Town. It would be very helpful if Green Up Volunteers would sign up online for a particular stretch of road.
Everyone is welcome to take part in this tradition unique to Vermont. For more information email Alice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
