  SPRUCING                                                                                  UP BEFORE THE START OF SCHOOL
    WEST BROOKFIELD — About 20 people, including pupils, parents, Girl Scouts, local resi-
  dents and at least one member of the Quaboag Regional School Committee, rolled up their
  sleeves for a Community Clean-Up Day Saturday, Aug. 22 at West Brookfield Elementary
  School. Their tasks ranged from cleaning flower beds to trimming shrubs.
    This was the first clean-up day coordinated by new Principal Colleen Mucha, who will wel-
  come pupils back to school next week.
    “When the students start school, I want them to be welcomed to a beautiful building and
  beautiful grounds so they know they’re special, we value them,” Mucha said. “And by them
  coming and participating in the work, it helps them take ownership of the school, and they’ll
  take better care of it.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    David Dore photos

  To make the deal even sweeter, each pre-
senting donor will receive a free container
of Friendly’s Ice Cream as a thank you.
  “The summer is very difficult for blood
collection since many people are away on
vacation, and high schools and colleges are
on break,” said Adam Edelstein of the
American Red Cross Blood Services.
  The drive is being hosted by Gage and
Kim Inslee, whose 22-month-old daughter
Alana has had numerous surgeries in her
young life and received many blood trans-
  “They are always scrambling for blood;
the hospital supply is not that much,” said
Gage Inslee. “We just want to make sure
there is enough blood for Alana, and we’re
