A Perfect Day for Lyme’s Day of Service!
On Saturday, May 7, 2022, over 140 people participated in Lyme’s annual Day of Service.
We started the day with neighbors and volunteers at our Grab & Go Brunch at The Lyme School. Thanks so much to our Welcome Table hosts and refreshment providers! There was quite a buzz as everyone prepared for what proved to be a productive and fun day. The weather even cooperated!
Individuals, families, and local organizations were involved: 30 volunteers helped with all kinds of projects, and over 90 people greened up roads. And that doesn’t include teams at the Library, Lyme Historians’ museum, and other locations, cleaning and greening up beloved community spaces. Many volunteers worked on more than one project or road. Volunteers and the neighbors they helped all looked forward to the big day, with some volunteers visiting the same friends they had met during a previous year’s Day of Service.
By Saturday afternoon, nearly all Lyme roads were “Greened Up” and many neighborhood projects were completed. It was a lovely and uplifting day to experience the strength of community.
We offer special thanks to:
The organizing team of Sue Hanlon, Kathy McGowan, Lynn McRae, Shelby Wood and Stephanie Graudons, who did an incredible job!! If you see them, please congratulate them and thank them for sharing their love and energy to involve us all.
