More than 200 volunteers appeared on Main Street for the fourth annual “Clean and Green Main Street” sponsored by the Residents For A More Beautiful Port Washington and the Town of North Hempstead. Among the enthusiastic crews were students from Port schools, members of the Key Club, teachers, mitzvah project leaders, Boy and Girl Scouts, Brownies, church groups, local officials and families. Besides the removal of litter, other goals of the day were also to turn soil, weed, plant, mulch, and sweep. This not only made Main Street look cleaner, but it improved Manhasset Bay by preventing further debris from washing into the drains.
Local businesses were on hand to help out during the event. Freitas Landscaping supported by securing plant and mulch. Sweet Comfort Bakery donated the coffee and morning treats. Wit and Whim also donated organic treats and eco bracelets.
