In addition, Maureen Parton, Aide to Supervisor Kate Sears, also acknowledged our work with Clean Marin and our leadership in ridding our communities of litter. Thank you, Maureen, one of our hardest working and consistent supporters. She also noted the work of Mary Osborn, the artist who has created Spot the Dog as well as Clean Mill Valley’s other litter graphics. Look for the banners in the Plaza downtown (see picture).
Spot the Dog (all six feet of him) did attend the city council meeting to bring attention to our Adopt a Spot program. We will bring Spot to events, particularly schools. He was the brainstorm of Maureen Parton and we thank her for that.
Clean Mill Valley continues to clean the Park and Ride Lot off Seminary Drive (West) and we are waiting for CalTrans to erect a sign that displays that we are the adopters. Be on the lookout.
Jill Young and Joan Murray tidied up downtown by removing litter to welcome the Mill Valley Film Festival. So many of you are working in your communities and removing litter close to home. Peggy Katcher has continued her passion by continuing to clean the entrance to Mill Valley at Tower and East Blithedale. She is the poppy lady who introduced and tends those brilliant orange flowers.
Karen Croy, a third grade teacher at Tamalpais Valley School, encourages her students to bring a piece of litter to class each morning. She is concerned about the environment and is teaching them to care about it too. A primary resolution to litter is to get to the source. Teaching children the impact of trash will have a significant impact. Thank you to everyone who continue to keep a little patch of our world litter-free!
