Boy Scout Troop 548 takes Trash-Off Title


The boys in troop 548 collected the most amount of trash as a part of a community-wide effort to clean up Sealy.

The annual "Don't Mess With Sealy Trash-Off" was hosted by the City of Sealy and ran through the rain of Saturday morning with teams made up of community members from all over.

Dee Anne Lerma, member of the Sealy City Council, mentioned the event has grown each year they've held it and the conversation has now reached the question of increasing the frequency.

Lerma added that she and other councilmembers were admiring the number of participants who spent their Saturday picking up trash and with the impact one round made, an even larger influence could be created with a second event every year.

In thanking the participants directly, Lerma included "You guys are so deserving, we hope to see you back here the next time we have this, we're definitely going to have it next year but possibly another one so we really appreciate it."

The true beneficiaries of the efforts were the streets of the town that no longer will have random items strewn about.

Sealy Public Works Director, Mark Pulos, also reveled in the number of volunteers and spoke to the community teaming up for the betterment of everyone.

"Whenever you get the community to do some good, it is a big plus," Pulos said.
