Thanks to all the local residents who participated in the East End Clean up. You have shown by example what a caring community we are in the East End Towns. Thanks for helping our "little piece of Heaven" the way GOD had intended it to be..May our visiting friends come out to enjoy the beauty and help keep it litter free as well.......
