5th Annual Oakfield Earth Day Community Clean Up a resounding success

By Jamie Lindsley

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who helped make the Fifth Annual Oakfield Earth Day Community Cleanup a great success! On the morning of April 19, 2014, over 60 individuals of all ages joined together to clear the roads in our community of unsightly litter in an effort to continue our annual earth day tradition. With Mother Nature’s cooperation this year, we were able to conquer twice the amount of roadside space as in previous years, thus eliminating many more contaminants from our beautiful environment! Participants joined together for lunch after the event to share feelings of accomplishment and to exchange stories about the experience. Most were amazed by the objects that were carelessly dispersed through the countryside! We hope that each year, we can continue to help people in our community choose to dispose of waste properly and to make them aware of the harmful effects in doing otherwise. Thank you to each person who donated a bit of their time to participate in this great cause! We also want to thank our sponsors for their assistance in making this event possible: Alli’s Cones and Dogs, Waldron Financial Group, Santino’s, Domoy Farms, Home Depot, Lorraine’s Daycare, Lamb Farms, Oakfield Lions Club, One World Projects, and the Town of Oakfield/Highway Department. We encourage you to support these local businesses and to thank them for their service to our community!
