Vermont’s Green Up Day

The way we play on Green Up Day is different from other play,

Bags of green and hand gloves too, we pick up trash to make the roadside new.

With friends we celebrate at making nature once again green,

And a safe environment for animals to roam safe and free.

Our AHG girls come prepared to clean what others have carelessly left us to glean.

We meet at the fire department at nine o’clock sharp, to ensure that we get a very good start.

No matter the weather people come together to make sure that they do their part.

As we head out to do a job that is worth being done,

I hear the words called out, “Go have some fun.”

No one can guess what we will discover, scattered trash or wildlife treasure.

A radio, a grill and a packaged frozen turkey are previous Green Up Day finds.

With heaps of joy and tired legs we look back and see the progress we made.

For those among us who need a little push in the right direction

Green Up Day provides that inspiration.

I say “Yay for Green Up Day!”
