"Building community ... working together."
Thanks so much to everyone who came out this morning for the WOWE (N. Wheatland/N. Oakley/N. Wayne/N. Eureka) Block Watch Area Clean Up! We had the best attendance ever for a clean up event in Highland West. Cleanup commenced at 9:30 and everyone was back to the community garden before 11:30, just in time to feast on a wonderful lunch, being prepared for us by Rene Schultz. A special thanks to the coordinators, Ricardo Mendez and Peggy DePew and their hard work in putting this event together. Thanks to Jack and Rene' Schultz for assisting us with food and photography. A special thanks to our State Representative Michael Curtin for taking the time out of his schedule this morning to join us in our efforts! Thanks to Lisa Boggs and her husband Jim for coming, and for the assistance and encouragement they gave our coordinators behind the scenes in helping them get these clean-ups established. Last but not least, a special thank you to residents of Highland West and those from other Hilltop neighborhoods who came to assist; thank all of you for believing in the mission - to make the overall community a better place! Our next stop on September 21st will be Palmetto South, S. Hague, S. Harris, S. Warren, and S. Ogden .... more if we get a lot of people. Stay tuned for place and time!!
