GNG Students help at the New Gloucester Fair Grounds
On Saturday October 14th, students from the GNG High School Community Service Club worked with members of the New Gloucester Environmental Resources Committee for several hours clearing brush and invasive plants in an area near the playground and shelter. They also helped plant forsythia in another area. They were hard workers and most enjoyable with which to work. The committee thanks them very much.
Below is a list of the names of these wonderful workers.
