Special thanks to Pepperoni Express for the lunch, Swirls and Scoops for the soft-serve ice cream, UniBank for the coffee and Dunkin Munchkins, Grafton RTC for the packets of wildflower seeds, and Savers Bank for the water and resusable backpacks that came in handy to hold the cleaning supplies and the wildflowers seed packets while the crews were busy picking up the trash around town.
