New meaning to “labor day”

On Saturday, Sept. 5, during the Labor Day weekend, a large group of incoming freshmen from Providence College, many advisors and local residents gave new meaning to “labor day.” They spent the day weeding, mulching, painting and cleaning at different sites throughout Jamestown. What a wonderful program, and our town has some of its sparkle back.

As a garden club, we appreciate all their efforts and want to publicly thank all those who were involved. Special thanks to Sharon Hay, Providence College dean of student programming and one of our active members, for spearheading this worthwhile and very visible project.
