MANCHESTER, NH — As part of several clean-up projects this week (see below for more dates) throughout the city of Manchester, the ASEZ volunteer group took their cause to Allard Drive on May 5. About 50 students from Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire picked up trash along the roadside, and Mayor Joyce Craig pitched in, too. The group hopes to reduce crime by improving the environment. See what the volunteers found during their mission.
