Litter Day

A big part of the vision of our church is to be “outwardly-focused.”  In other words, every organization, particularly churches, have a tendency to turn inward and forget that part of their mission is to serve others.  One of our goals is to be as involved in as many community events as we possibly can.  Thus, Litter Day.  No, not a day to litter (I hate litter!), but a day to pick up litter around the community.  Morrisville sponsors 2 Litter Sweeps a year.  This past Saturday was our church’s second chance to help out.  We had about a half a dozen volunteers who met at the town hall, met some nice folks from the town, received our vests, bags and gloves, and then were sent out to McCrimmon Parkway to collect trash.  As you can imagine, we found a lot of trash and very few treasures.  We found several skeletons of small animals.  It was great to have a Vet on our team to help us try and identify what kind of animals they might have been.

Anyway…we had a lot of fun serving together and met some great people.  I did find a Harley-Davidson  trailer hitch that I’ve cleaned up and would gladly give to any Harley owner who might want it.  Below are a couple of pics from the day.  Thanks to Matt, Dana, Joy, Anna, Carter and our new friend Laurin for serving!
