Yesterday’s wet, chilly weather forced a week’s postponement of the Main Street Outdoor Market, and Saugatuck Church’s Blessing of the Animals. It kept many Westporters indoors.
But it did not stop — or even bother — over 300 SLOBs.
Staples’ Service League of Boys’ 10th annual Service Sunday drew all those volunteers — high school boys, and their parents — to 18 work sites, in Westport, Fairfield, Norwalk and Bridgeport.
Westport venues included Earthplace, Wadsworth Arboretum, Homes with Hope’s Bachrach and Linxweiler houses, Sherwood Island State Park and Wakeman Town Farm.
The groups whacked weeds, mulched, sorted charitable donations, power-washed, prepared food drive collection bags, cleaned playgrounds and paths, painted mailboxes, removed invasive plants, hauled and spread compost, and assembled toiletry kits.
They also donated over $5,000 worth of school supplies, snack bags and used Legos to Bridgeport schools
That was SLOBs’ Sunday. How did you spend yours?
