Monkton news for May 3

MONKTON — Green Up Day is Saturday, May 5. You can pick up bags and gloves at the town hall during office hours this week and note on the map there where you wish to pick up roadside trash. Your help is important if we want to ‘Keep Vermont Beautiful!’ A big “thank you” to all who volunteer for this event and all others. After picking up trash in your area, please leave your green-up bags at the town shed. There will be a designated area marked for drop off. The town hall will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Green Up Day so you can pick up bags and sign in your green-up location. For more information contact Chelsea at [email protected] .
The Russell Memorial Library will also be open and will be holding a thematic pop-up library at the town hall for the day.
The Monkton Elementary School is doing a Green Up event this week, coordinated by Stephanie Murray. Good job students!
