When you’re out enjoying beautiful Back Bay Park and Water Tower Park this summer, be aware of the work of about a dozen HWTN members, including several children, who spent the morning of April 20 filling around 25 bags with bottles, cans, glass, plastic, paper and a lot of unimaginable yuck to make these scenic green spaces even more enjoyable and beautiful.
As part HWTN’s 2rd Annual Parks Spring Clean-Up, our hearty and hard-working volunteers filled 14 28-gallon bags with garbage and 12 13-gallon bags with recycleables. In addition to cleaning the main areas of the parks, we picked up garbage all the way to the bottom of the hill in Back Pay Park and off of about 80% of the bluff near Water Tower Park.
Parts of the parks haven’t been cleaned in years — among the older items we uncovered was an 8-track tape! Check out a photo album of our team, refreshments and garbage from the fulfilling morning. Special thanks to VP of Events Lise Sadagopan for bringing morning treats and organizing the event. Others who rolled up their sleeves and pitched in included Jeff Bentoff, Linda Gaalaas, Thea Kovac, Jeff Loss, Rich Russell, Ava Viohl, Bridget Viohl, Adrian Zilvetti, Antonio Zilvetti and Nicco Zilvetti.
Hope to see you in HWTN parks this summer, and at our 3rd annual clean-up in 2014!
