Debris collection thanks

To the Editor:

One of our village’s central corridors, County Line Road (aka Lake Cook Road), had its Earth Week Spring Trash Pickup on April 26.

Our small but sturdy crew (some of Barrington Hills’ cleanest and greenest folks) tidied up our village by collecting 72 orange bags of roadside debris, one black bag of discarded trash, one box, two tires, one rusty utility locator sign, one bent 50 mph speed limit sign and assorted miscellany.

Sponsored by the Village of Barrington Hills’ Heritage & Environs Committee, our semiannual cleanup fielded six teams led by team captains: Barrington Hills Trustee Karen Selman, committee member Donato Cantalupo, Laurie Abboud, Chuck Prettyman, committee member Jennifer Kainz and Rudy Stevens.

Volunteers included a cross section of our village: Barrington High School and middle school students, Trustee Michael Harrington’s family, prominent equestrians, young parents, older parents, grandparents and hip singles. Veteran volunteer, committee member and former trustee Lorraine Briggs, helped with registration, along with committee member Gary Gabriel, who also served as field coordinator.

Event chair Jan Goss did a su-perlative job with planning and communicating the day’s needs. The Barrington Hills Police Department provided the safety tips and road security for our determined volunteers.
