Mosquito Trash Party is April 9

Weather and road conditions permitting, the annual Mosquito Trash Party is scheduled for Saturday, April 9, from 9 a.m. to noon. Get on the guest list by contacting Abha Singhal at 1-978-287-1429 or Abhasinghal Let us know where you will be working, or stop by the parking lot next to Ferns that morning for refreshments, grab a trash bag (or two), choose from the list of "unclaimed" streets in need of cleaning, and set off on a hike that benefits us all.

High school students can earn community service credits, and if you have a truck but are unable to attend that morning, we can use your help later in the day transporting the "pickings" to the transfer station.

Clear your calendar, find the gloves, and join us at the party.
