Rockland

Rail Trail gets spruced up

The Rockland Open Space Committee hosted its annual spring cleanup last week, with about 25 volunteers picking up litter along two miles of the Rail Trail, the walking and biking path built on the old Hanover Branch Line rail bed. The volunteers included several Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as Home Depot employees. Home Depot donated gloves, trash bags, rakes, and bottled water for the event, according to Don Cann, chairman of the Open Space Committee. “We try to have two a year; one in spring and one in the fall,” Cann said. “It’s important because it’s the community taking responsibility, in contrast to the litterers who did not.”
