Letter: Thanks to volunteers who joined clean-up

Thanks to volunteers who joined clean-up

To the editor:

On July 14, I announced on electronic media that I and my crews were going to clean up the eyesore at the old Hess gas station on Tyler Street and landscape the facility with flowers generously donated by Big Y, Walmart and Home Depot. To my surprise, a large group of people showed up on Saturday with weed whackers, mowers and pruners and did a wonderful job of cleaning up the mess there. The flowers were picked up that Sunday and the landscaping is now done.

I do not know who those workers are, but all I can say is thank you for all of your hard work.

I and my crews will keep up the property throughout the summer and if some of the people in the Tyler Street area can keep an eye on the flowers and water them, I would be greatly appreciative. Thank you to all who were involved in this citizen project.

Craig C. Gaetani, Pittsfield
