Mt. Monadnock Little League volunteers helped to clean up the ball field at Memorial Park in New Ipswich Saturday, as part of the town’s April town-wide cleanup, and in anticipation of the spring season.

After a April snowstorm delayed the planned kickoff of the cleanup on April 6, the town’s Parks and Recreation Department moved the official start date to April 13. The cleanup will continue through April 26.

Blue trash bags are available at the town office with a sign-up sheet, so the Department of Public Works knows which roads to visit to collect the trash.

Ashley Saari can be reached at 603-924-7172, Ext. 244 or asaari@ledgertranscript.com. She’s on X @AshleySaariMLT.
