The Blairstown Enhancement Committee (BEC) partnered with Blair Academy for the annual Blairstown Spring Cleanup on May 20th. Working alongside BEC volunteers, more than 75 Blair students and faculty tackled various projects in the downtown area.
The Pocket Park on East Avenue, one of the Village’s best-kept secrets, was cleaned up and planted with azaleas, lambs’ ears, nepeta and marigolds.
Main Street was fully weeded and swept by one group, while another planted flowers donated by Race Farm around the flagpole at Footbridge Park.
Also at Footbridge, Blair students painted murals on the concrete surfaces of the coal bins.
All the work was completed during one of the hottest days of the month.
