On Sept. 25, the Kiwanis Club’s youth arms began a new year of projects.
Their first project was the community clean-up of the new airport highway. There were students from Abaco Central High School (ACH), Forest Heights Academy (FHA), Smith’s Memorial and Central Abaco Primary School (CAPS).
Neulessa Major, president, explained that these student make up the Abaco Community Key Club, the New Builders Club and the K- Kids of Central Abaco Primary School. They were chaperoned by Major, and three advisors: Yasmine Glinton, Demetra Moss and Jesika Smith.
A Friends of the Environment education officer supplied some of the garbage bags, gloves and survey sheets for the students.
There was a total of 66 children involved with the clean-up, and they collected 32 bags of garbage. The younger students were quite amazed at the amount of garbage collected and the kind of garbage collected.
“It is our hope that our fellow Bahamians who dump garbage on the highway, will do a better job of keeping our surroundings better,” Major said. “Thanks for your continued help and support.”
