FHIA Spring Clean Up Apr. 17

It is once again time for our annual Spring Clean Up in Forest Home. The event will be self-directed, as it was last year. This will allow flexibility for people who prefer to socially distance. The cleanup will take place on Sat. Apr. 17 from 9:30 am – 1:00 pm. You aren’t expected to work that entire time. That is when Herb and I will be available for assistance. Herb and I will provide a couple of trash grabbers, work gloves and plastic bags to share. We’ll leave them by our back door, so just come by and borrow what you need. We’ll take the trash and debris to Tompkins County Solid Waste and Recycling Center.

Do what you can and stay safe near the roadside. You can also just clean up outside your own house. If you want to choose an area (some of you already have), let me know so that someone else doesn’t duplicate your efforts.

Areas usually covered include Forest Home Park, Warren Rd. up to the streetlights, Forest Home Drive down to the upstream bridge (near Caldwell Rd.), Judd Falls Rd. and McIntyre Rd. and any other area in FH that you feel needs sprucing up.

Thank you for your contribution and let me know if you have questions or would like someone to join you for safety and support. Herb and I are fully vaccinated and glad to work with anyone who wants a buddy.
