Carter’s Cove resident encourages others to keep litter cleanup alive

Carter’s Cove resident Bill Blair has gone to great lengths for nearly two decades to keep the subdivision and roads leading into it pleasing to the eye. 

Recently, some health problems have prohibited Blair from being as active as he used to be in cleaning up litter and debris from his neighborhood’s roadways, and he is now encouraging others throughout the county to step up to the plate, to give just a little bit of time and help clean up Gloucester.

Blair said he has always helped with cleanups ever since he served in the U.S. Army in his younger days. When he moved to the area about 17 years ago, another gentleman was in charge of regular cleanups along Aberdeen Creek Road. “He got tired of it and it got to looking pretty messy,” Blair said.

He was on the board of the Carter’s Cove Homeowner’s Association, and was asked to volunteer to clean area roads about 15 years ago. “I’ve been doing it ever since,” he added.
