Community a little cleaner

April 27, 2011

Dear Editor,

My daughter, Lauren Zajac, and her friend, Gillian Noonan, got together and made a plan to do something for the environment on Earth Day.

The two of them spent about two hours Friday morning in the cold and rain cleaning roadside garbage. They cleaned approximately one mile of Oakhill and Hadley roads and accumulated the equivalent of four 13-gallon trash bags of garbage. We are so proud of these girls for taking a stand on saving the enviroment for themselves and their children.

We know that this is a little step, but every candy bar wrapper picked up is a step in the right direction. To take it one step further, Lauren is also a member of the Ecology Club at Brandon Fletcher Intermediate School in Ortonville.
