Neighborhood cleanup TOMORROW

Hi neighbors, you're invited to join a truly constructive community volunteer project! 

We're building sturdy, attractive benches for the pocket park at 2nd and Channing Streets NE, along Lincoln road. These are cool planter benches, with built-in flower beds to enliven this triangle park with seasonal color while giving folks a place to enjoy the green space. (The built-in planters will also protect the plants from accidental mowing. 😉)

Meet in front of Edgewood Rec Center (300 Evarts St. NEtomorrow morning at 10:30 -- same place and time as our monthly cleanups. Then volunteers will do a mini neighborhood cleanup along the short walk to the pocket park, which we've been beautifying.

We'd love your help with assembling the benches in the pocket park or cleaning up litter from the surrounding blocks. Gloves, bags, and refreshments provided.

We've purchased all necessary materials (your contributions at work!), and have the proper tools (thanks Michael!) DPR is accepting the benches as a donation for community benefit. If you have questions, just ask organizer

Hope to see ya tomorrow, and happy Labor Day!
