Andes Works! Events:

Annual town trash pickup

Wednesday,  April 17th  and Saturday, April 20st.    Rain dates will be April 18th and April 21th.   Meet at 9:00

It is that time of year again, when most of us are unhappy seeing all the trash along our beautiful roads. The “Bag Ladies of the Tremperskill”,  Ann Roberti and Nancy McShane, are again seeking help in their annual endeavor of litter removal. They have chosen two days to accommodate those who can only make a weekday and those who can only make a weekend.    Debris removal days will be Wednesday,  April 17th  and Saturday, April 20st.    Rain dates will be April 18th and April 21th.   Meet at 9:00 AM at Hogan’s with work gloves, boots and any “reacher” tools you might have.  Wear a bright shirt or jacket or orange vest.   Plastic bags will be provided.     You can contact Nancy at 676-3534 or Ann at 676-3643 if you would like to help or to get more information.   If you can’t make our organized litter pickup, perhaps you can join us in spirit by picking up on the road by your home.
