CHESHIRE, Mass. — The Cheshire Community Association will hold its townwide cleanup Saturday, Sept. 25
"Gathering with friends and neighbors for a community project is a feel-good experience," Cheshire Community Association President John Tremblay said about the cleanup that is in its sixth iteration. "This event always has a very upbeat atmosphere and some folks that are now good friends met for the first time during one of our clean-ups.
The cleanup starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. Participants are asked to meet at the Highway Department garage.
Signups end at 9:15 and participants can then join a cleanup crew
"We focus heavily on the town center, including the former elementary school grounds, along with hot spots like Wells, Windsor and Notch roads, the Stafford Hill Monument grounds, and the lake causeway," Tremblay said. 
Tremblay said they had about 60 attendees at the last clean-up. This allowed them to send out 10 or 12 teams.
At noon, the group will have lunch at the highway garage.
"We'll have a group joining from the Youth Center located in town, which will add some great energy and provide a nice learning experience," Tremblay said. "We'll also have local folk artist Linda Worster playing during lunch, which is offered to all participants."
Tremblay said the event always instills a sense of community pride.
"Whether it's your home, lawn, or the town you live in when they appear well cared for and it gives you a sense of pride," he said. 
The rain date is Sept. 26.
