Join us for the 50th Annual Green Up Day! Spring has sprung! We at the Chamber always look forward to hosting this annual event in Springfield, and with the snow finally gone, we are looking for volunteers to assist us with cleaning up our town after the long winter. The official green trash bags will be available on the day of the event, as well as for advance pick-up from the Chamber during the week leading up to the event - Tues, Wed, and Thurs, 9:30am to 2:30pm. (social distancing and masks required for everyone entering our office) On Saturday, May 30th, we will be congregating in the People's United Bank parking lot from 8am to noon, and working together to spruce up the neighborhood. Families, friends, and community members will help with raking, picking up litter, and clearing away debris. Please remember to dress appropriately – it is extremely important to wear work gloves, long pants, and proper footwear to protect against ticks and debris along your clean-up journey – and we suggest wearing neon for visibility. Bring rakes, shovels, brooms and any tools that might come in handy for clean-up. We also ask that folks observe all COVID-19 safety guidelines as much as possible, including social distancing, mask wearing, and any ways that we can all work together to help keep each other safe. Volunteers will be on call throughout the day to assist you with any questions you may have. Most of all, remember to have fun! You are bettering our town and community by sharing your energy and spirit to assist with maintaining Springfield’s beauty. Our gratitude goes out to the Public Works Department! They will be going around to collect and properly dispose of all the filled bags and any trash items left on the sides of the roads. *PLEASE NOTE: Pick-up day is Monday, June 1st ONLY* And a shout out to our friends at Springfield On the Move for contributing mulch for the gardens and bushes, and to Springfield Garden Club, Springfield Rotary Club, Springfield Lions Club, and all the individuals, businesses, and organizations that contribute their time and energy and volunteer with us every year! We appreciate everyone's help in keeping Springfield green and gorgeous. It takes a village! For more information, please contact the Chamber at 802-885-2779 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up! See you on May 30th!
