We live in a wonderful town, that's filled with the natural beauty of forests, fields, rivers,
streams, ponds and wildlife—as well as historic buildings and cemeteries. All too often, many of us forget just how
interesting and beautiful our town is, and don't do all that we can to help preserve that beauty. If you're like me, you feel
disgusted when you're walking or driving down a road in our town and see trash littering the sides of the road, or in our
cemeteries, Diana's Pool, or other public spaces. Here's a chance to do something about it!
The Chaplin Conservation Commission sponsors an annual Chaplin Cleanup Day, which takes place on
the 3rd Saturday of April each year, which is the first Saturday after income tax returns are due. This is usually just the
right time of year. It is late enough that the weather is usually tolerably warm, the spring thaw mud is drying, and all the
greenery is just on the verge of popping out. It is also just early enough that the foliage isn't quite out yet, including
poison ivy leaves. And it's the same week as Earth Day. We receive funding for food and refreshments from
The Last Green Valley.
The goal is to have as many individuals, households, and organizations as possible each agree to
clean up a section of road or other public area (like Diana's Pool, a cemetery, etc.) within Chaplin. We hope that you will
participate, and encourage your friends and neighbors to participate, to help renew this sense of pride and make our town an
even better place to live.
Here's how it works:
For everyone who participated in the cleanup, we will be gathering at Garrison Park for an
after-cleanup lunch. Food and drink will be provided (probably pizza, soda and seltzer), and additional potluck
contributions are welcome (but not required). Please let us know if you are planning on attending, so we'll know how
much food to purchase.
