Mystic River Clean Up a Great Success

For where two or more are gathered together in My Name, I am there in the midst of them."
-- Matthew 18: 19-20
This morning way more than two gathered together in Jesus's name.  By the end of our cleanup we had a crew of 18 from Grace Church and friends in Medford cleaning along the Mystic River.  The kids were especially helpful at reaching under the brush to gather the trash where the adults could not reach.  John Rogers had made some pick-up sticks for us and our friend Joni and Cecilia brought a tiny rake which was perfect for fishing plastic bags and bottles out of the river as well as raking up the numerous broken glass bottles we found.

Check out some of the exciting things we found below in the slide show.  The count for balls, was 3 softballs, 2 lacrosse balls, 2 tennis balls and a couple golf balls.  Ironically, we pulled a receipt from a recycling yard from the river.

Come join us next Saturday, May 1st beginning at 10am at Cummings Park for our next GreenUp CleanUp community gathering and fun cleanup of the park.  We are still looking for some donations, so please let us know by filling out the form at GreenUp CleanUp if you will join us or want to help in another way.

Here are some images from our fun today:

May the Lord be with you!
