Earth Day Neighborhood Clean Up

This is a reminder that our Earth Day Neighborhood Clean Up effort is right around the corner. Your North Willow Glen Neighborhood Association is hosting a neighborhood maintenance and barbecue lunch on April 22, Earth Day.

Meet at 9am in Fuller Park's Horseshoe Pits (between Delmas and Prevost).  The signature project this time will be the Prevost railroad bridge. NWGNA has partnered with the city's anti-graffiti contractor who has donated paint for railroad bridges that is a single color of "North Willow Glen" beige. This will put an end to the sad gray/beige patchwork we've become accustomed to. To make that happen, we will need to provide the elbow grease in the form of volunteers. We will provide the tools, we just need you to be there ready to paint. While we're at it, we're going to get the fence and some neglected nearby light poles. If weeding is more your style, please bring your favorite implement and a pair of gloves and we'll spruce up the park as well.

At 1pm, we will set up a barbecue in Hummingbird Park (corner of Bird and Fisk) with hot dogs and beverages for the crew. Bring something to share and enjoy time with your neighbors. The Produce Share will start at the same time so it's sure to be fun. Fresh paint and fresh produce; sounds like a great way to spend Earth Day.
