I hope you noticed the groups of high school students downtown during the day this past Thursday. And I hope you noticed that there were additional groups out at city park on the same day. Bless them and their helpful spirits. They were the cleanup crew and they did a splendid job.
Seems it was testing week at Peabody-Burns Junior-Senior High School. While some kids were taking exams, others had little to do. High school principal Tim Robertson coordinated the cleanup effort with Peabody Main Street. Groups of students swept downtown sidewalks, touched up the paint on the front of Peabody Lanes, and picked up piles and piles of limbs and branches at Santa Fe Park and city park.
Thanks kids, teachers, and sponsors. And thanks for thinking of us, Mr. Robertson. We appreciate the help.
