First, a big THANK YOU to Pam, Maggie, Gene, Beryl, Leigh, Jon, Mark, Maarten, Marilyn and Bill for your time and energy this past Saturday morning, as well as for some of the pre-event preparations. Needless to say, we couldn't have made it happen without your support.
Thanks, too, to Susie Eckblad for posting the publicity posters in all the community mail kiosks. And, of course, to Amy Ghiloni, on behalf of ReMax United Realty, for her generous financial sponsorship.
Your pooled effort resulted in the removal of 5,400 pounds ( two and three quarters TONS ) of unwanted, shredded, paper from our file cabinets, garages, and attics. That paper is on it's way to a facility in Georgia that will convert it into "toilet tissue" - some of which just might find it's way back into our community in that much-valued form.
The Chatham County Sheriff's people collected more than 45 pounds of "unwanted medications." That may not sound like a lot - until you do some math ( as I did ) and figure out that that is more than 22,000 pills. Pills that won't be flushed down the toilet to contaminate Jordan Lake, or put in the garbage to contaminate a land fill.
And, by checking - and re-charging when necessary - dozens of community fire extinguishers, the folks from the United Fire and Safety Equipment Company have helped to make Fearrington a safer place to live.
So now you can all relax and enjoy the upcoming Holidays - and get ready for our next "3-in-1" Event on the third Saturday in May, 2022 (May 21st).
THANK YOU, again, for your help !
