Despite the heat and humidity, the annual FREE document shredding event in Brookside was a great success Saturday July 11th. Residents were lined up and waiting in the south parking lot (beside the tennis courts) as early as 7am, eager to take advantage of this community service event. The event was converted to a no-contact service this year, allowing cars drive through rather than participants parking and getting out. Masked volunteers took documents from trunks and back seats, offered a free Forever Brookside sticker, and had people back on the road in no time. Thanks to the volunteers and sponsors who made the event possible again this year!
