April 24th Group Earth Day Clean-up Cancelled
BUT….Individual Every Day Clean-up Encouraged!
For the last several years the Fortunes Rocks Association has partnered with the Biddeford Pool Community Center on an “Earth Day” clean-up of the area. Last year the group clean-up was cancelled due to COVID-19. Members were asked to consider making one of their daily walks a clean-up day by picking up litter along their route. While we have a better handle on COVID-19 this year, we still believe it is prudent to cancel the group clean-up and to encourage members to do individual clean-up on a day of their choosing.
All that is needed are gloves, a small trash bag, and a grabbing stick. Trash bags are available on the FRA clubhouse deck, as are several grabbers which members may borrow. Please return the grabber when you are finished so that others can use it.
Please DO NOT leave your collections on the side of the road for pick-up or at the clubhouse. The City of Biddeford is providing a dumpster for disposing of trash. It will be at the Biddeford Pool Community Center on Saturday morning, April 24th. Litter can also be placed in your home trash bin. FRA will not have a dumpster this year.
This is the perfect time of year for reaching trash entangled in the Rosa Rugosa. Just seems like the perfect solution to our springtime Earth Day clean-up. Hopefully, next year we will be back to holding a group clean-up.
Thank you and stay safe.
