By Cindy Watrous and Barb Young



As the Orwell Green Up chairmen we would like to thank all the town’s folks, kids and school that helped pick up our road side. We cleaned up many miles of roadside and collected a whole dump truck worth of litter. 

Thank you for the road crew for helping out too.

Counter prevailed in the boys’ javelin and shot put, Perlee leaped to wins in the girls’ long and triple jumps, and Carter won the girls’ shot put and tied for first in the girls’ 100-meter dash.
