Spring Cleaning with Friends and Neighbors on May 10

We had a great time at our Spring Book Exchange on Sunday – thanks to everyone who volunteered and everyone who joined us!

We’re doing a quick evening cleaning at the park this Friday to clear out some of the weeds, trim the shrubbery, sweep up the leaf debris and clean the sandbox. We’ll do anything we can manage in an hour so stop by for any time that you can (even if it is only 15 minutes) from 6:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday evening.

RSVP on for the Clean-up on Facebook or comment below if you are able to attend!
