Coventry residents clean up neighborhood

Event organizer Mary Antenora called the neighborhood’s first cleanup effort “Portage Lakes Pride.”
“We wanted to beautify our neighborhood and help Portage Lakes Advisory Council get information out on storm-water runoff,” she said. “Leaves are a major problem in neighborhoods and add negatively to property values and keeping our lakes, streams and neighborhoods clean and green.” Antenora is at right bottom above as she takes a break from raking.
Clean-up volunteers included 16-year-old Coventry High School students Zoie Ulrich and Kaitlyn Krepps, shown at right top, from left, picking up leaves and litter.
Shown at top is Bob Ashley Sr. unloading a trailer of leaves gathered in the development.
Organ Avenue resident Scott Newcome also helped out during the event and is shown at right middle raking leaves out of a roadside culvert.
