Judging by a few of their comments, they were very pleased with the results:"Thank you for including my spring yard cleanup for the second year. The students were friendly, eager to work and efficient. They did what I asked them to do and were extremely polite. Please praise the small group which worked at my home. I am unable to work outdoors and I do appreciate your student cleanup group. Sincerely, Beatrice Henningsen""The all-girl team you sent did a really great job. This 80-year-old is deeply grateful.
