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.
