A group of 26 Naugatuck High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets recently cleaned the east riverbank of the Naugatuck River and Greenway in Linden Park in Naugatuck. Master Sgt. Gary Morrone, USAF (ret) and Lt. Col. Valerie Lofland, USAF (ret) led the cadets. The cleanup was the eighth time the group has completed conservation projects along the Naugatuck River. More than a dozen large bags of light debris, a shopping cart and tires, metal barrel, a rug, several lengths of pipe and rusted metal debris were removed. The project was organized by Joe Savarese and Bob Gregorski of the Naugatuck River Watershed Association and sponsored by the borough of Naugatuck. Student Transportation of America in Naugatuck donated the bus transportation.
