Stu­dents sweep through Stanstead

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The en­tire stu­dent body and fac­ulty of Stanstead Col­lege took to the streets and the woods last Thurs­day as part of their an­nual Com­mu­nity Cleanup Day. Di­vided into groups, the stu­dents spent the af­ter­noon at var­i­ous points in Stanstead pick­ing, sort­ing, paint­ing and plant­ing. Two groups set out on the Beebe-to-Stanstead bike trail to re­trieve trash along the way. At Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary School, stu­dents painted the fence around the gar­den and pulled weeds. One group sorted books at the Haskell Free Li­brary, while an­other or­ga­nized do­nated books at the Ro­tary Club book­store.

Some stu­dents picked up de­bris along Duf­ferin while oth­ers of­fered a help­ing hand at the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety shel­ter.

At the new com­mu­nity gar­den be­hind Manoir Stanstead, stu­dents and teach­ers tilled the soil, sowed seeds and read­ied the gar­den for plant­ing.

All in all, it was a suc­cess­ful and pro­duc­tive af­ter­noon.
