AMHERST â Brisk temperatures this morning didnât stop the Double D 4-H club from fulfilling its commitment to clean up trash on Robert Angus Drive.
âItâs cold, itâs windy, but we all dressed for the weather and weâre doing good,â said Ben Bacon, a 15-year old whoâs been with the club for six years.
Sharlene Carter-Earle. Double Dâs general leader, called the event a âfirst annual.â She said part of 4-Hâs program is community involvement: kids need to learn responsibility for themselves and their environment.
âI have a few that arenât here,â she said, but most members braved the chilly weather to pitch in.
The group had the use of a pickup to haul the junk away, compliments of one of their leaders, Alan Pipes. And Pizza Delight was feeding the kids once their task was completed, compliments of Keith MacIntosh.
âYeah, itâs a good way to get out,â said Bacon. ââŠHelp the town, do some volunteer work, help the Earth and do our part.â
