Earth Day is a time to celebrate our planet, including cleaning it up! In Methuen, Tim Vermette from the Methuen Rail Trail Alliance was joined by a small group of volunteers to brighten up the trail. Vermette used a leaf blower to clean up the leaf debris left over from the winter months. He said, “We had a few people show up because of the rain from earlier in the morning. Many thought (the cleanup) may have been canceled, but we’re here getting things done.” MethuenLife photo by Nancy Reardon
