VSEA’s Week In Action Newsletter: May 29, 2020

Throwback to 2007, when Vermont would allow state employees release time from work each Green Up Day to go out and help with clean up efforts. This group of state employees is pictured, reporting for duty at the Middlesex AOT garage. May 30 marks Green Up Day’s 50th anniversary.
