Nice Work!

There is some kind of arrangement (brokered by the Parks Board, maybe) by which various groups volunteer to keep the sides of the major roads clean of trash (what's a major road in Point Roberts?  Maybe none of them?  Maybe all of them, at least if they're paved?).

I recently returned to walking pretty regularly and noticed that the edge of Benson, next to the new walkway, was really trashy.  I mentioned it to one of the Parks Board people, and he said he thought it was the elementary school PTO that was responsible and he'd mention it to them.

I guess he did, and I guess the Parent Teacher Organization sprang to action because I was out the other day and was mighty impressed that there was Zero trash and that the big branches that had fallen in one of the big wind storms had also been moved off the easement and some appeared to have been sawed up.  The latter stuff may have been County good work, and the trash removal the PTO good work.  But whoever did it, good work!  Nice to have the community step up to do what needs to be done.
