Operation Beautification–A Success! A BIG shout out to everyone from the Claremont Addition Neighborhood Association who joined efforts to make our community a more beautiful place to live during the Ferguson Road Initiative Operation Beautification Litter Cleanup Event. Thank you Bayles Elementary School Bobcats, students, staff and faculty for cleaning your campus–inside and out! Thank you to Bryan Giron and Michael Laurion for tackling the trash mess on Graycliff from Ferguson Road to Stonycreek. Harry Swanson on Claremont Drive helped pick up trash and Debbie Shaw volunteered at the staging area at Impact at Bethel on Ferguson Road.

Thank you to Martha Quigley who ensured all volunteers received their supply kits and to Rob Brown for helping to set up the tents. I’m sure I am forgetting someone else who volunteered from CANA. If you helped today, and I left your name off this list, feel free to reach out and let me know that you helped and what areas you cleaned up. We really worked hard to remove illegal signage and we targeted area parks. Despite the early wind and light rain, we persevered! If you live in the Claremont and love this area as much as these volunteers do, I encourage you to become a member of CANA and support us at claremontaddition.org Many hands make light work!
