REMINDER: Tomorrow is Neighborhood Cleanup Day!

Tomorrow, September 6, 2 is the monthlyEdgewood neighborhood cleanup and BBQ, and the weather forecast looks great. Please come out and join your neighbors if you can. 

We meet in front of the Rec. Center (300Evarts St. NEat 10:30. The cleanup is sponsored by the Friends of Edgewood, and (as you know, ha ha) occurs the first Saturday of each month at this time and place. We provide bags and gloves, and plus grilled hot dogs and soft drinks afterward, around noon. Come join friendly neighbors old and new, to clear litter from our neighborhood and chat about local news, etc. Free food and drink for volunteers.

You're invited to stop by and say HI, even if you only have a little time and can't stick around for lunch, or can only help for a couple minutes. If you can't come out at all, keeping the area around your house clean helps us cover more areas!
Here also is our free membership signup form-- pls.  spread the word to other neighbors who might like to get involved.
