April 3rd: Town Wide Clean-up - Picnic to Follow

Saturday, April 3 : Town Wide Clean-up ~ Tired of seeing that rotting mattress on the back road from Norwich? ...or the smashed up computer monitor in front of the old town landfill on Route 151?
     The Moodus Sportsmen’s Club, and the East Haddam Scout Troops are sponsoring the Annual East Haddam Town Wide Clean Up Day to be held on Saturday, April 3, 2010. The goal of these organizations is to coordinate an annual effort to pick up the streets, lakes, streams, and other public access areas in the Town of East Haddam. Would your organization or individuals in your organization be willing to participate? We are still in search of families and groups to pick up sections of the streets in which they live on. Is there a section of town that you or your group would like to take over the stewardship? Could you and your neighbors adopt a street?
     The Sportsmen’s Club members will concentrate on State and Town boat launches and Babcock Wildlife Management Area. The Scouts will be working on Rte 82 from the East Haddam swing bridge to River Road. East Haddam Scout Troops have also been contacted to assist in picking up these other designated areas.
     Pickup starts at 8:00 a.m. If you wish to join our groups, meets us at the East Haddam Town Hall on Town Street at 8:00 a.m. or start from your own street.
     Lunch starts at noon at the Moodus Sportsmen's Club. Traditional picnic items such as hot-dogs, baked beans, coffee and iced tea and lemonade will be served along with the seasonal bounty only a sportsmen’s club could serve.
     We can inventory the items collected and talk about ways to reduce these problems. We'll also have educational information about the Town’s natural resources and outdoor recreational opportunities.
