Highway Cleanup Day

Saturday was a great day for a walk. Ten members of the Dryden Democratic Committee met for spring cleanup of our section of Route 366 - from the FH Fox bridge to Route 13 near NYSEG. I like this project. It involves an hour or two of chatting with a colleague while walking along picking up trash with a little pointy stick. As the bags fill we can set them alongside the road. Is it the highway department or the trash collectors who pick them up the next day? I'm guessing that, at Teamster wages, picking up the litter would be an expensive job for the highway department. So, while I'm glad we don't have to be responsible for potholes and snow removal, I'm glad we can do this.

On the way home I stopped at the recently re-opened B&B Farms Market. Vegetable seedlings and bedding plants are available, as well as quite an array of landscape trees, shrubs and perennials. The market also carries local products such as cheese and maple syrup, as well as these very comfy Adirondack style chairs from central New York Amish craftsmen.
