The annual community Elmer Tarr roadside clean-up day on Sat. April 19 had record attendance of 51 participants representing seven organizations. This event is co-sponsored by the Bristol Area Lions and Masonic Lodge #74. Elmer Tarr was both a Lion and Mason, who, during his daily walks would keep the Route 130 roadside clean from New Harbor to Pemaquid Point.
