Chelsea Green Roots held its annual city wide clean up this past Saturday, April 22, on Earth Day. More than 100 volunteers were spread over the City to clean the marsh, creek, parks and cemetery. Trash, needles, broken pier parts and even shopping carts were found and collected. Volunteers ranged from local residents, members of the Chelsea Housing Authority, Green Roots, City employees, City Officials and members of Global Oil and Eastern Salt.
