Earth Day 2021.
Our ambitious Realtors teamed up to tackle clean up at one of our local cemeteries; Pine Grove Cemetery, a 32 acre parcel in Waterville! It was a family affair, including spouses, children and grandchildren! We even had an extra helping hand from our KVBR President, Jeff Harris!
The kids had a friendly competition of finding the biggest broken branches, a group searched the perimeter for trash & debris while the rest of us focused on raking and bagging up leaves!
It was a massive job to tackle, and although we didn't get everything accomplished, together we made a dent. Our hard work was rewarded with Gifford's afterwards. Mmmm, ice cream!
All in all it was a productive afternoon leaving us with happy hearts & full bellies.

Want to make an impact? Here are some simple ways to celebrate Earth Day, every day!
HANG UP THE KEYS. Instead of driving, consider walking or biking. The weather is only improving here in Maine; take the opportunity to get some fresh air!
REUSE. RENEW. RECYLE. Repurpose household item. Contact your town to see if they have a recycling program, every little bit helps.
DITCH THE PLASTIC. A simple place to start is reaching for a reusable water bottle versus bottled water. Swap out plastic grocery bags to reusable totes or bags.
