Vail Daily letter: Great Avon cleanup

Thank you to all the volunteers who came out on Saturday for Avon’s inaugural town clean-up. It was a beautiful day spent sprucing up the town and getting to know our neighbors. One intrepid resident — a new fan of the Avon West Preserve — even volunteered to spend the morning picking up dog poop on the trails!

Heartfelt thanks also go to all the sponsors. Lunch was donated by the Vail Valley Salvation Army, and great music was courtesy of the Tenth Mountain Division Band. Other essentials — Dumpsters, trash bags and safety vests — were provided by Vail Honeywagon, The Home Depot and The Eagle River Watershed Council. Town administrators and public works staff took care of the nitty gritty to make sure the day was a success for all involved.

We appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing the community out enjoying all that Avon has to offer throughout the summer.
