James Rinck, a member of the Grand Rapids Public School board, has the following announcement we would like to share with you:
"Last year, many of you either expressed interest or contributed to the paper drive at Riverside Middle South that took place this past winter. Thank you for your contributions. This year, the middle school is working with the Cub and Boy Scouts who meet there to have a permanent paper drive. Our hope is to have a convenient place for those in the Northeast part of town to recycle, but, to do so, we must provide a steady stream of papers/phone books, or else the company will remove the trailer. The company will not accept cardboard or magazines. We have just started this month, and we are hoping to notify as many people as possible about this opportunity. Our Scouts have been working to beautify the school grounds with new trees and plants, and, if we can raise money, we plan to work in Riverside Park as well. The school will share in the proceeds of the paper drive as well."
