Volunteers from community businesses and individuals came together at parks throughout the county on Saturday, April 7, 2012 to pick up litter for the Great American Clean Up (here’s their website: http://www.kab.org/site/PageServer?pagename=gaclanding).

The Modus Green Team gathered at Colonial Oaks Park and Ken Thompson Park in Sarasota, Florida. We had a blast. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect Florida spring day. Boats floated lazily in the beautiful bay while the kids from the Modus group pulled on their rubber gloves and filled their bags to the brim with trash.  In fact, the stars of the outing were the little guys, led by professional cutie-pie 2-year-old Kate, who picked up any and all debris she could find, including rocks, sticks, leaves. Kate also picked up some trash.

Once our job was done and Colonial Oaks Park was picked clean, we broke for a much deserved yummy lunch.  Lots of laughs and great camaraderie was had by all.

Modus Direct is proud to support Keep Sarasota Beautiful and was grateful for the opportunity to help keep the area where we work and play clean. Next time we’re off to clean our Adopt a Road on Honore Ave., from 17th Street to University Ave.  Make our job easier and our roads and parks cleaner: Please don’t litter. Then we can just skip to the food and camaraderie.
