Cheshire Cleaned Up In May

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
CHESHIRE, Mass. — A pandemic should never stop a little spring cleaning and residents took the month of May to spruce up the town.
Since 2014, the Cheshire Community Association has organized a community cleanup during the month of May and even with challenges this year they found a way to persist.
"The CCA's first community event in October 2014 was a town clean-up day that attracted more than 40 hardy souls, including State Representative Gail Cariddi (may she rest in peace)," Cheshire Community Association members John Tremblay and Eileen Quinn said in a joint email. "During this very challenging time of separation and anxiety, our objective is to use this shared goal as a way of maintaining connection among our residents and continuing to build on the theme of ‘Cheshire Proud'."
Of course there is a stress on health and safety this year and volunteers are asked to wear personal protective equipment and work with family members or alone to minimize contact with others.
