“Easthampton Clean Up Day is spring cleaning for our community.” said Liz Provo, a member of the Nashawannuck Pond Steering Committee, organizer of the event in partnership with Easthampton City Arts and the Friends of the Manhan Rail Trail.
This year the pond committee is also partnering with WE "Water Walk" which will be held at the White Brook Middle School track starting at 1PM. This is a great family fundraising event. The pond committee will have a table providing information on the pond and our local award-winning water. Food will be available. The public is asked to make a donation and will be able to carry 3 - 5 gallon jugs of water around the track, simulating what people around the world must do without access to clean drinking water.
