Two Lancaster High School students have spent one Saturday a month since last October leading other students in clean up days throughout Lancaster, targeting areas around the bike path.
In the beginning of March, Liberty Sexton and Lydia Serra, both juniors at LHS, were joined by 11 others for a clean up day at Cenci Lake Park.
Sexton and Serra said they had started doing the clean up days to get more leadership hours for their applications to the National Honor Society but decided to continue doing them to help give back to the community.
"We were inspired by the school's Ecology Club," Sexton said. "It can't hurt to help pick up litter, and there's always so much of it, especially once you start looking. After the first clean up day in October, we've still been getting a lot of turn out. It feels good to help the community, plus it's a fun way to see friends."
