The Andover Townsman

---- — Members of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Lawrence and the Andover High School Key Club honored the life of Capt. George L. Street this fall by cleaning the area surrounding the memorial bridge named in his honor on Greenwood Road over Interstate 495 in Andover.

A former resident of Andover, Street was a highly decorated submarine commander in World War II as well as a Rotarian. The Town of Andover named the Capt. George L. Street Memorial Bridge in his memory in November 2000.

Mike DeLuca of the Kiwanis Club led the effort in organizing what was the sixth annual cleanup of the area around the bridge. The volunteer work crew cut weeds, raked leaves, swept sidewalks and removed a small amount of trash from the area. Trucking service was provided by D.J. Walters.

The cleanup coincided with Veterans Day observances.
