The HH* and I were out doing our part. The good news is, there was not a ton of litter to pick up. Most of what I found looked like this, below, near a playground: the odd piece of wrapping from a child's snack.
I was pleased that there was nothing too alarming to find, no deliberate illegal dumping of tires or appliances or anything like that. Maybe the world is becoming more civilized.
The HH* is on the town trail committee, and he and some fellow Rotarians cleaned up the Malta Community Park.
Below here are Ann and Pastor Peter Klotz (he also a Malta town councilman) along with Arlene, Helen, Kathy, and Al.
And here below is Arlene Schmidt with the HH* (AKA, Bob Conner, of PlanetAlbany.)
Following our part in the clean up, we went back to Shenantaha Creek Park and met up with folks who had been working at other locations.
Maggi Ruisi and Tara Thomas, both town councilwomen, had been doing their part...
along with about one hundred capital district youth rugby players, both boys and girls, and some folks from the Luna Chix Mountain Bike team .
