October at Shepherd Parkway

Dear Friends,

Please join our next community Clean-Up on Saturday, October 15 from 11 am to 1 pm. 

We meet at the picnic tables near the corner or Martin Luther King and Malcolm X Avenues SE.

Gloves, bags, and water are provided. Volunteers should wear boots and clothes you won't mind getting dirty. Bring a water bottle.
October is my favorite month at Shepherd Parkway. The air is fresh; the mosquitoes are gone. It is cool but not cold. The trees are a riot greens, yellows, oranges and reds. 
I know you have many choices and demands on your Saturdays, but consider: these two hours will yield concrete benefits for you and your community:
  • Each and every person who attends makes a measurable difference. Every can, bottle, and bag picked-up brings us closer to our goal of healthy, beautiful park.
  • Research demonstrates that physical and mental health benefits of  physical activity in nature.  
If you find the time to join us, you will not regret it.

Peace and Blessings,

Nathan Harrington
Chair, Committee to Restore Shepherd Parkway
