Pick up after your­selves

The Glengarry News - - News -

The Ed­i­tor, Would you leave your yard look­ing like this? Be­cause you are leav­ing our yard like this.

That's right, beer cans, wa­ter bot­tles, pop bot­tles – you've even emp­tied your car ash­trays at the side of our road and left pa­per cups and wrap­pers from var­i­ous fast food restau­rants to linger in our gar­dens, not to men­tion yards of dis­carded soccer tape ly­ing in the grass for the birds and small an­i­mals to get tan­gled up in. There are garbage bins and a large blue re­cy­cling bin pro­vided, not even half full.

Oh yes, there is also a porta potty pro­vided. Not every­body uses it. Doesn't smell very nice in that cor­ner of the field. I could go on.

In clos­ing, please re­spect not only the fine peo­ple who work hard to keep the fields nice for you to play on, but also the res­i­dents of your lo­cal towns and vil­lages. And pick up after your­selves.
