Teachers and students raking leavesFor the 4th year in a row, the East Greenbush Teachers Association (EGTA) teamed up with the Town of East Greenbush and the local Cub Scout Pack 2257 to rake the lawns of several local veterans as a thank you for their service.

The group of volunteers raked a dozen lawns and filled more than 150 leaf bags.

“A huge THANK YOU to all of my union sisters and brothers who volunteered today to rake the lawns of local veterans,” said Columbia Social Studies Teacher Dan Wagner. “All of the veterans were so appreciative of our efforts and we told them all it was the least we could do to thank them for their service. Happy Veterans Day to all who served!”

Special thanks to both Home Depot and Lowe’s for their donations of leaf bags, gloves, masks and more!
