Thank You for Lake Cochichewick’s Annual Clean Up: 2019

Thank you to the volunteers for helping clean up around Lake Cochichewick on October 19, 2019 
Thank you to the volunteers, North Andover DPW, the Conservation and Planning Departments, Sustainability Committee, and the Harbormaster for helping clean up around Lake Cochichewick on October 19, 2019. Thank you to the North Andover Country Club and Rolling Ridge for participating in the clean up along their shorelines. Last, but not least, thank you to Smolak Farms for the delicious apple cider donuts.

The annual Lake Cochichewick clean up event demonstrates the power and impact of volunteer work in our community. Volunteers picked up 520 pounds of trash from around the lake that morning. This event sets a wonderful example. It shows the difference that our actions can make in both our community as well as the natural environment around us.

Thanks, once again, to all participants for making a positive impact in North Andover and protecting your pristine drinking water source. We look forward to next year’s clean up!
