Snipe Hunt 2018
OCTS thanks all participants in our semi-annual trash pick-up on Leeds Manor Rd from JBP to Wheatley School Rd. Wonderful people making Orlean better for all with shining faces (that could have been sweat) and happy demeanors (that was the promise of a drink at the Market). Great to see new people helping, too. As always Brownie (the antique van - NO AC) was there to ferry us all back and forth. Thank you Orlean drivers for observing the warning signs and slowing down and giving us a wide birth to keep us safe during the event.
We're at it again! On Earth Day, April 22, 2018 -- 13 OCTSers and 1 Driver got together to spruce up our stretch of trash pickup along Leeds Manor Road. A fine day for all -- we collected 25 bags of trash! Jack treated us to beverages at The Orlean Market afterwards. Thank you all for helping to make our community the great place that it is!!
Our next Trash Pickup will be the weekend of National Service Day for September 11.
This is the fine bunch of "trashy" OCTSers who spent a couple hours Sat., Sept 16, 2017 cleaning up Leeds Manor Rd. from The Orlean Market to Wheatley School Rd. We picked up 23 bags of litter! Carla treated us to snacks & beverages afterwards at The Market. Thank You Carla!
The next clean-up is scheduled for Earth Day, 2018. Join us to see how much fun we have while doing good.
