Volunteers make a difference


To The Editor:
It was a great day.
On a beautiful Saturday morning, more than 55 volunteers showed up in Margaretville to join together to clean up flood debris and litter throughout the village. 

In four hours, two dumpsters were filled to the brim, roadsides and streamsides were cleared and some treasures were found.  Volunteers came back hot, sweaty and mud-splattered, and in a couple of cases with twisted ankles.

A number of second homeowners volunteered, happy to be able to help the area they love look clean again. 

Spirits were high because everyone felt that their contribution was going to make a difference and it certainly did. Thank you all for the hard work you did.  You can be proud!
