The Stoneleigh-Burnham School Community Service Club on September 26 participated in the annual Source to Sea Cleanup of the Connecticut River along the four-state watershed (NH, VT, MA, CT).

Katlyn Grover ’16, a member of the SBS Community Service Club, reported at Housemeeting recently that there were 12 student volunteers from Stoneleigh-Burnham who participated in the river watershed cleanup, along with club advisers Karen Suchenski, middle school Humanities teacher, and Beth Stinchfield, chair of the science department.

The SBS volunteer group collected 10-12 full trash bags of waste and filled an entire bed of a truck with larger items pulled from of the river bank.

“By picking up trash along a small tributary, we became part of the solution for cleaner rivers, healthier wildlife, and safer river banks,” Katlyn said.
