Edgewood Tree Planting November 20th
November 10, 2010
Greetings Neighbors and Friends,
On Saturday, November 20, 2010, the Edgewood Civic Association in partnership with Casey Trees Endowment are excited to launch a premier tree planting project of a variety of trees to canopy one of the District of Columbia’s main street’s in Ward 5, of the Edgewood community. This is one of many cultural green landscape project designs to improve the environment and to create more beautiful,livable space in the District of Columbia. Additionally, this project will pay tribute to one of this
community’s youth, whose life was loss to senseless crime – a memorial tree will be planted and dedicated to her family and friends; it is our statement of the value we place on her life and of all of citizens these communities and of the District of Columbia.
It is our endeavor to involve all of community as a matter of civic duty. For this service project, we are seeking volunteers (schools, churches, business, citizens, etc), to serve from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM; however, any amount of time is welcome and appreciated. For any period served, we are obliged to provide a light breakfast and lunch.
For all students who volunteer; we encourage, and invite them to bring school forms to document these community service hours, official signatures will be provided.
This event promises to be a rewarding experience, as each one gives back to our community where we live, work, educate or worship.
