Capital City Public Charter School Students Doing Service with Buddy Bison at Meridian Hill
By: Nenna, Andryck and Natalie
On Wednesday, September 23rd, we went to Meridian Hill Park with Buddy Bison to pick up trash. When we got there, Mr. Shegog and Ms. Williams gave us trash bags and gloves. We picked groups of two and got to work. I didn't know there would be so much trash. It was disgusting. There were scraps of paper, bottle caps, pieces of glass and cigarette butts. We weren't allowed to pick up the cigarette butts, so the adults helped. I sort of liked picking up the trash because it made the park look nicer. We carried Buddy in our arms, on our shoulders and on our heads. Once we were done we took pictures with Buddy. Everyone had fun cleaning up the park, including Buddy Bison!
