The Meredith Crew
The Meredith Crew was developed in preparation for the increased population
and traffic in one of Meredith's more natural parks. Trash was beginning
to accumulate in a rather pristine area of Meredith.
Meredith Crew was formed in 1999 by Keeler Lapham and Ross Robertson,
who saw the need for trash clean-up at Swasey Park and Turtle Rock.
After cleaning up the area, they went to the Town of Meredith, and asked
for a no-littering sign, and their help. The town selectmen offered
to make them T-shirts, and named them "The Meredith Crew".
"The volunteer members of the crew would each receive T-shirts,
be issued gloves at each clean-up effort, and would be called when the
town needed a little extra help to prepare a public park for an event,
for cleanup after the event, or when an area is in need of trash patrol.
This was a great opportunity to learn early conservation, and that our
actions can have a positive effect on our community. Thank you for your
interest in "The Meredith Crew".
