Most of those who come to our community clean-ups work 40 hours a week or more, and Saturday is often the only they get to sleep in. Ten in the morning is perfect for some, but a challenge for the Friday night partiers and those trying to catch up on sleep.
I've also noticed that, given the physical demands of working in the park, three hours is a long time to expect people to keep at it. I've noticed a lot of people coming late and leaving early.
So we've decided that for the rest of 2015, our community clean-ups will run from 11 am to 1 pm instead of 10 am to 1 pm. We hope that this change will enhance both our numbers and the experience of those who attend.
If you have questions or comments about the change, feel free to email me at nbharrington at yahoo.com.
We hope to see you next Saturday, September 12 at 11 am!
