The Friends of Whitehall will have their 13th annual fall clean-up on Saturday October 14th from 9 AM until Noon. Please join us at the boat landing at Whitehall State Park on Wood Street (Rte. 135) in Hopkinton for a little pre-Halloween fun and work. Our goal will once again be to pick up trash and debris from the trails and shoreline around Lake Whitehall. The lake and trails were heavily used this summer so we will have quite a bit to do. We will also clean up some roadsides near the lake. Bug spray, gloves, trash bags, tools, and water will be provided.
