RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

Sunny April day

Three students, two alumni, two parents, one staff person

Gloves, boots, trash bags, donuts

Forms filled in with pledges from friends and family

Dollar bills and checks

Drive about a mile from the school

Tramp in the brush and by the river, picking up other people’s trash

Broken glass, cans, paper, plastic

Excitement when we find something unusual:

A rusty wheel, a large piece of metal, a different glass bottle

Conversation, songs, reflection, stories.

Result:

Over $1,000 to help children attend Fairhaven School

Tired muscles, elevated spirits, 30 bags of trash

A sense of connection with each other and our planet

A Fairhaven parent,
