15th annual Taylor Massey Creek Clean Up

Scarborough - 45 Oak trees and native shrubs were planted at this years clean up. One oak was planted by local resident Jerry Diplaros who lost his son in Afghanistan on Dec. 05/08. Volunteers also cleaned up the banks, water way and surround area of the creek from garbage. Harry Van Bommel started the cleanup 14 years ago with his wife Janet, because what he saw was a 'georgeous area that looked terrible'. When he started 14 years ago they were pulling out multiple shopping carts and large items from the creek area, now it's small items like bags with dog waste, bottles, wrappers, and other miscellaneous debris.
