(BALDWIN, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé (D – Freeport), Assembly Member Judy Griffin, and volunteers rolled up their sleeves on Saturday, Sept. 26 to clean and improve public spaces in Baldwin’s Lofts Pond Park. The clean-up involved the efforts of a dozen volunteers, who cleared seven full bags of trash and debris from the park.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, more residents have found a renewed appreciation for Nassau County’s beautiful parks, beaches, ponds, and community outdoor spaces,” Legislator Mulé said. “This weekend’s community cleanup offered Baldwin residents an opportunity to beautify these cherished outdoor spaces so that they can be enjoyed throughout the year. I’m thankful for everyone who joined in this effort and look forward to continue our efforts throughout the Fifth Legislative District.”
“We are so fortunate to have Lofts Pond in our community and we must do our part by keeping it beautiful. Today’s cleanup is a step forward in ensuring that our waterways are maintained and kept clean, so that they will remain a place of enjoyment for many generations to come. Thank you to the volunteers who joined us,” said Assemblywoman Judy Griffin.
