August Alley Cleanups

We all know our alleys can be a real jungle and it’s time to do something about it!  This August we will be hosting alley cleanups on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month.  On August 9th we’ll get started on the alley behind Peabody Elementary between Young and Oliver and on August 23rd we’ll tackle the alley between Oliver and Nelson.  We’ll meet up both days at the Peabody Elementary parking lot and plan to work from 9 am to 1 pm.  Celtic Crossing will also be hosting a refreshments tent in their parking lot only a few quick steps away and we’ll have access to their bathrooms for the cleanup!

We’ll try to provide tools for everyone but just in case be sure to bring any hedge trimmers, gloves, or weed eaters you think might be useful.  We also recommend that everyone dress appropriately in long pants, long sleeves, and comfortable shoes.  If you’d like to help out but aren’t able to make it for the whole morning, we’d love to have you for an hour or two.  We also won’t say no to friendly snacks and refreshments if you’d like to support the effort but can’t stay out in the heat for too long.

We’re looking forward to getting together and making our alleys a cleaner, safer place and we can’t do it without you-so come on out and join us this month and let’s see what we can really do!
