Pawlet second community clean up a success

Dear Editor,

On April 29, the Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union’s Currier Memorial School in Danby, Vt., and the Mettawee Community School in West Pawlet, Vt.,  held their 2nd Annual “Community Clean Up.” Thanks to Casella Waste Management and ACE Carting Services for the generous donations of waste containers for these communities to access. Casella’s has never hesitated to help the communities of Danby and Mount Tabor, their customer service and communication with us is second to none, we truly appreciate all the efforts they make each year. Likewise, it was wonderful to work with ACE this year as well as they are a new business reaching into the West Pawlet and Pawlet communities.

Finally, we’d like to offer our thanks to the volunteers in the communities. The community members who made that extra trip for a neighbor, who took the time to walk the roadside looking for litter, and was there to help. The purpose of this event is to not only make our communities a cleaner place, but to bring communities together for a common goal. You are the reason this event is a success. The Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union is happy to help and support these communities with this event. We hope to sustain and grow each year to touch more communities and families and continue to model teamwork, kindness, and consideration for others to our students, who are the future of these communities.

Billy Canfield, Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union Home School Coordinator
