Longmeadow Volunteers

The Longmeadow Volunteers led by Bill Morey are a group of town residents that volunteer their time and effort to help make Longmeadow a more beautiful place to live.  This group was formed several years ago and they coordinate their effort with the Longmeadow DPW.  The volunteers bring their own equipment... and if necessary the DPW follows up on Monday morning to pick up the brush and other debris from their work.

Projects have included cleanup of many different areas of town including school building grounds, town building grounds Blinn tennis courts and the LHS track facility.  A couple of weeks ago they cleaned up the American Legion building which is the old Town Hall. Last weekend in preparation for the beginning of the new school year, they started "sprucing up" school grounds starting with Center School and this past weekend the team was at the Glenbrook Middle School and Williams Middle School.

Below is a short video of the cleanup work that was done at Glenbrook Middle School.

Next weekend, August 21 their work shifts to the Longmeadow Adult Center on Maple Road from 9 am - 12 noon.
