With my children grown and gone, the annual Earth Day clean up has been left to me. Two years ago, the town highway crew was good enough to come and pick up the four large garbage bags I filled from this small area. Now retired, I have been happy to see the Earth Day recognition that I partnered to start in Ticonderoga High School continue, but a small group of students and staff cannot clean up all of Ticonderoga and surrounding areas.
I would encourage everyone to do your part, and get out on April 22 (if not before) with a pair of gloves and a garbage bag. We all need to make everyday, Earth Day.
As I always told my students, I was not lucky enough to be born here, but I chose to live here, because of it’s incredible beauty, and I will do my part to keep it that way. Oh and by the way, this year I will be helped by my 4-year-old grandson in cleaning up Mossy Point and Black Point Road! Never too soon to learn the family tradition!
