Help us keep the town clean and green!
The West Greenwich Land Trust would like to thank the forty plus volunteers who joined us on Saturday, April 25 for the Town
Wide Earth Day clean up. We were thrilled to see over 40 volunteers ranging in ages 7 years to 70 who came out to help clean up our roads!
The colorful West Greenwich Land Trust Earth Day shirts with our twenty-two sponsors listed looked great on everyone. It was
wonderful to see our young citizens taking part and having fun doing it!
Thanks to all of the trustees and to our Earth Day coordinator, Bob Verrier, for doing a great job with this event! We have
always said this is the best town in Rhode Island to live in because of the people who care so much about their community.
