A hubcap. Metal fence posts. And a note written by a student in 2009.
All were among the “treasures” that nearly 40 volunteers found as they cleaned DeLaSalle and Nicollet Island on April 16 as part of the 9th annual Island Clean-Up Day.
Co-sponsored by the Parent Association and the student GREEN team, the event drew parents, students, staff, and friends of the school, who fanned out across the island with trash bags to make for a cleaner and greener environment.
Volunteers collected about 45 bags of trash.
