METHUEN – This will mark the Eleventh year that Groundwork has held their annual Spicket River Cleanup in Lawrence and the Second year that Methuen has participated in the event. Last year ten Methuen residents including members of the Methuen Rail Trail Alliance, the Methuen Trails Committee and folks from Methuen’s Memorial Music Hall converged on the section of the river in downtown Methuen. Riverwalk Park on Osgood St. and the Broadway area behind the Music Hall were targetted and over 700 pounds of debris was removed by hand from the river, including televisions, barrels and tires. This year with a larger turnout, we can also target other sections of the river.

Join us Saturday September 22nd at the Manchester St Park in Lawrence…just past the end of the Methuen Rail Trail; where we will meet up, count heads, distribute trash bags and gloves, then we can head back to the river and make a difference. Afterward Groundwork provides a free lunch for all the volunteers – and you better get their early because Lawrence turns out hundreds of volunteers to work on the Spicket River Cleanup.
