Reclaim Sweetwater lunch and learn seminar well received

June 12, 2014

Gary Decker of Stamford was the speaker at this month's Lunch and Learn, "Reclaim Sweetwater." Decker successfully initiated a clean-up campaign in Stamford by partnering with the city, as well as businesses, civic groups and social clubs. Decker's goal was to clean up and clear away illegal dumping sites, run down and vacant buildings and abandoned cars. He asked the city council — not for money, but for support — which he received.
Half a Saturday, once a month, is clean-up day in Stamford. Specific projects are chosen each time and the campaign has been a huge success.
