I wanted to help our community in some way but I’m not much of a joiner. Then I had the idea that it shouldn’t take belonging to an entire organization to help keep my community clean. So once a week, I get a trash bag, don my gloves, my handy trash picker-upper, and head for the streets. People are always so friendly and some thank me for what I am doing. I am sad to report, one bag is never enough but happy to say that I feel I am making a contribution.
