October Community Cleanup -- tomorrow!

Dear neighbors:

You're cordially invited to join tomorrow's monthly Edgewood Cleanup! Meet in front of the Rec. Center (3rd and Evarts NE) -- Saturday, Oct. 3 at 10:30 AM -- rain or shine! Free refreshments for volunteers.

This month's cleanup is again joined by Edgewood's own Beacon House. This local nonprofit serves local at-risk youth through sports (football!) programs at the Rec. Center, homework assistance, mentoring, nutritious meals, and more. We hope you can join too!

The cleanup is sponsored by the Friends of Edgewood, with special help from the Beacon House children's charity this month. It starts here the first Saturday of every month, and we provide bags, gloves, and snacks. All are welcome to meet friendly neighbors, clear litter from our community, and stay informed. If you can't make it, tidying outside your house helps too. Questions? Ask cleanup founder and local government representative THANKS, and see you around!

P.S. -- Our first two outdoor movie screenings -- The Princess Bride, and Jurassic Park, as determined by YOUR VOTES! -- were popular community events, where the Met Branch Trail goes past the Rhode Island Ave. shopping center. Both were preceded by short films about other DC nonprofits' great work.
**SAVE the date for this year's final movie -- BEETLEJUICE! Thursday, October 22 at 7:30 PM by the Met Branch Trail pedestrian bridge.**
