Thank you for coming to our annual clean-up!

Well another clean-up is done!  Thanks to those of you who stopped by and dropped items off.

We’d especially like to thank our dedicated group of volunteers (many of whom have volunteered multiple years now).  THANK YOU:  Mike P., Steve, Sean, Franco, Megan’s crew from Jean’s Place, Yu, Lily, Jay, and Eric (from Buckman Neighborhood Association) plus our Central Catholic crew!!! You all worked so hard at today’s event! I know I’m forgetting some names but we really are grateful for everyone who volunteered today.

Thanks also to Cloudburst Recycling, Total Reclaim and Good Garbage for their hauling experience!

One more shout out of THANKS our neighborhood businesses who are donating food to feed our volunteers!  Delicious Donuts, Staccato Gelato, Starbucks, and Whole Foods Market.

Neighbors wanted!  Join our board!
