MINETTO – The Minetto Canal Clean Sweep volunteers met at Minetto Town Hall on Sunday.

Four of their volunteers were missing from the photo.

Then, they each grabbed a garbage bag and a safety vest to start their clean up.

They cleaned up the Riverview Park, cleared out the town gardens, and cleaned up all of the garbage from Lock 5 along Route 48 to one mile south of town, including the dugout.
