Members of the Academy of Arts, Dance and Traditions of India helped clean up McCook Beach in Niantic after the Celebrate East Lyme festivities last month.

The group, led by Seema Mukherjee of the Kumon Math and Reading Center on Flanders Road, coordinated with First Selectman Mark Nickerson to pick up trash and recyclables left behind after the festival and fireworks display at McCook Point Park.

“We do what we can to give back to the community,” Mukherjee said in a release. “We had quite a few volunteers, including kids and adults. Everyone jumped right in and the clean-up was great.”

AADITI is a local Indian dance and arts group celebrating Indian-American heritage and performing at cultural and community events around the state. For more information, call (860) 701-8970.
