ANDOVER, Vt. – Come help beautify the town grounds, clean our roadsides, and spruce up our cemeteries at Andover’s Green Up Day. A community of volunteers will meet Saturday, May 4 at 9 a.m. at the Andover Town Hall. Vermont Coffee Company coffee and homemade donuts will be served as volunteers choose their work assignments.

Participants are encouraged to bring gardening gloves and tools including wheelbarrows, rakes, clippers, loppers, and leaf blowers and join in the community spirit.

The work will continue until noon. Afterward, participants are invited to share a lunch with their friends and neighbors. Bring a potluck salad or dessert to accompany the hot dogs and lemonade that will be provided. Thanks to our generous community members and the Vermont Coffee Co. for donating food and refreshments.

Can’t make it on Saturday morning? If you have a favorite road or cemetery you would like to work on before Green Up Day, please contact Town Clerk Jeanette Haight, 802-875-2765 or clerk@vermontel.net, to let her know where you will be working. Or, you can let her know while picking up your Green Up Day garbage bags at the Town Office.

This is a great event for our environment and our town; so if you haven’t come before, give it a try this year! There are plenty of jobs for all, no matter how young or old.
