BANGOR - People around the world were doing their part to make the planet a more beautiful place today. And in honor of Earth Day, two local groups partnered for a much needed clean up day in the Bangor community.
Adults and children with developmental disabilities took part in cleaning up the planet Tuesday. Alongside family and caregivers, members of Downeast Horizons participated in an annual Earth Day clean up at Williams Playground.
This year Downeast Horizons partnered with Husson University's Epsilon Tau Epsilon sorority.
Bangor Parks and Recreation provided supplies to clean up the park, located on the corner of Newberry and Hancock streets.
Following the cleanup, the crew enjoyed a picnic lunch to celebrate their hard work.
