Members of the SoNo STARs from STAR, Inc., Lighting the Way gladly resumed their clean-up efforts of Norwalk neighborhoods last week, following recent review of their program by the Common Council and confirmation that the program will continue by Mayor Harry Rilling. The group works on cleaning up areas that are reported to the city for litter or graffiti. They was photographed cleaning up Liberty Square in Norwalk last week, during which time they picked up twigs and branches, hundreds of empty bottles, broken glass, food wrappers and other debris from the grassy areas, sidewalks and parking lot areas of Liberty Square.

At recent Common Council hearings, family members and city representatives discussed the impact that SoNo STARS has, including the fact that it is the only removal program in the city. Parents and members of the group shared their enthusiasm for the work they do.
