Latham Centers in Brewster is looking for volunteers to help clear out their newly procured property on Route 6A.  In August, Latham acquired the old New England Fire and History Museum property just down the road from the center's main property.

But before Latham can put the property to use, the overgrown grounds need tending.

Volunteers are needed to help Latham's staff clear and remove brush on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  If you are interested in volunteering for the full day or part of the day, contact Carol Sullivan at 774-353-9213 or [email protected].

Coffee, donuts and lunch will be provided.  Volunteers are asked to dress appropriately for outside work and bring gloves and heavy pruning equipment if available.  

Tours of the property will be given at the beginning and end of clean up day. Once the property is in shape, Latham will expand its many services for adults and children with special needs including Prader-Willi Syndrome.

The property is located at 1439 Main Street in Brewster. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
