Earth Day is April 22 and next weekend, April 24-25, is a great opportunity to observe it. We can contribute to our lake community, enhance the environment, set a good example for our kids & grandkids, and carry out another part of our Healthy Lake Boon Initiative. Please help pick up trash along our roads to keep the neighborhood looking nice and prevent anything from blowing into the lake or clogging storm drains.
In Hudson, the Clean-Up Weekend will take place Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers will be in front of Hudson High School to hand out trash bags and to dispose of the trash you have collected, or you can dispose of it with your household trash. Volunteers will also be collecting donations for the Hudson Food Pantry, which has a need for easily-prepared meals, cereal, canned fruit, pasta, rice packets, chilli, stew, and hamburger helper.
Those in Stow can also be part of the town-wide cleanup and register at:
