With Earth Day coming up next week, residents and groups will be out planting trees and cleaning up litter.
That includes the Delaware County Democrats, who are organizing a litter pickup at Bailey’s Ford Park south of Manchester this Saturday.
That’s Doug Hawker of Manchester, a retired DNR employee. He says everyone is welcome to come out and help, regardless of your political affiliation.
They’ll be meeting at 10 am Saturday at the Prairie Meadows shelter at Bailey’s Ford Park. The litter pickup will go until about noon, with a light lunch served afterwards. Everyone is encouraged to bring along a five-gallon bucket and wear proper footwear and clothing, as well as lightweight gloves.
