A Clean ‘Claw

Enumclaw High School students Sarah Lane, Alex Castanza and Chloe Gilthvedt, joined by several classmates and some elementary and middle school students, were out in force May 2 cleaning up a stretch of the Veazie- Cumberland road. Lisa Eilertson, director of Keepin’ the ‘Claw Clean, adopted another road under the name “EHS Hornets” to get Enumclaw High School students like those who turned out May 2 involved in helping keep Enumclaw clean. The cleanup was in conjunction with Lisa Parsons’ annual Green River Cleanup. The EHS Hornets team was one of the ground crews for the event. Eilertson said the students did a fantastic job with good spirits, digging in deep into ditches. The group removed and filled 44 bags of trash, in addition to collecting various chairs, tires, fencing, car parts and more. “I was so proud of their efforts because these students gave two hours of their time in the rain to participate in an event simply out of the goodness of their hearts,” Eilertson said. - Photo courtesy Lisa Eilertson
