    Green Up Day is Saturday

    Vermont’s Green Up Day takes place this Saturday, May 5 across the state. This is a great opportunity to clean up our communities while teaching our children a lesson in civic duty. This afternoon Vermont Edition spoke with Melinda Vieux, president of the non-profit Green Up Vermont about the upcoming event. She said that in addition to the normal clean up activities, many Vermonters will be assisting in the continuation of the Irene clean up.
