4 TFM Engineers Adopt-A-Block InTown Manchester

On the afternoon of Friday, June 2nd, TFMoran employees once again joined other local volunteers for InTown Manchester’s annual Adopt-A-Block. The event is a neighborhood clean-up usually held near Earth Day, but due to the persistent springtime rain, Adopt-A-Block was rescheduled to June. This year Jeremy Belanger, Maureen Kelly, Matthew Mullen, and Robert Vida picked up trash, raked, and mulched near the Mill Girl statue on Commercial Street. With several other groups assigned to the large swath of green space, there was just enough work to go around.
