Team Clean Kids Honored For Their Cleanup Efforts

Olly's Pizza offers discount pizza, hospitality to group.

Monte Calvario Church, located on North Main Street, has organized a weekly street cleanup effort by their young members.

Under the direction of Stephanie Ortega, about 13 members of the church have met on Saturday mornings since the start of the summer, cleaning several streets each week.

When Rep. Bob Phillips (D-Dist. 51) was made aware of this valuable community service, he offered to sponsor a pizza party for those involved as a reward and in recognition of their efforts. The party was held at Olly's Pizza on Oct. 5, with owner Peter Vosdagalis graciously offering special pricing and cheerfully serving the group, which has named itself "Team Clean."

The group will continue their efforts every other week during the school year. "This wonderful example of volunteerism, and the recognition thereof by Bob and Pete, will hopefully inspire others to community involvement. Efforts like this are part of the solution to our many challenges," said Yvette Ayotte, a cleanup organizer.
