The Stoughton Youth Advisory Council is sponsoring the annual Pride of Stoughton Day next Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. The event will begin with a lunch for volunteers at the Stoughton Youth Commission/Council on Aging building on Rockland Street before participants fan out to do planting, painting, and cleaning at several sites, including the Capp Playground, Halloran Field, the O’Donnell Middle School Skate Park, the Community Garden, and the commuter rail train station. The antisubstance-abuse group OASIS hopes to cut down some trees between the Capp Playground and Jones School, an area known to be a place for drug and alcohol use, in order to make it more open. “We’ve had a lot of support and donations from other town agencies, including trash pickers and rakes from the DPW, hot dogs and hamburgers for lunch, and stain for painting from the Recreation Department,’’ said Stoughton Youth Commission clinician Melissa Barbosa. Employees from the Target and Stop & Shop stores in town are expected to participate. To volunteer, e-mail Barbosa at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-341-2252, ext. 9454. - Rich Fahey
