Spring is in the air! And it’s time to do a little cleaning on our streets. We all see the trash in the streets, maybe occasionally we pick some up, but it can be a bit overwhelming at times. So, we are getting together as a neighborhood, with some outside help, to clean our streets! This cleanup will cover the southside of Adair Park from Lexington Ave to Elbert St. The next one will cover the northside. We will meet in Adair Park I under the pavilion by 9am to get into groups and have a little breakfast. We will split up into teams, each one taking a street, and head out. This should wrap up by at least noon, where we will come back, turn in tools (provided by Atlanta ToolBank) and head home. This is such a great time to meet neighbors and hang out with those you know. Sure, picking up trash isn’t the most glamorous job and is hard work at times, but the joy in seeing clean streets plus the people you meet make it so worthwhile. Check out pictures from previous cleanups and park renovations here.
Please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Chenee Joseph at 678-463-6315. We need to get a headcount. All you need to bring is gloves, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. We will provide breakfast, trash bags, tools and water.
Not to mention, since we cannot do a cleanup without a party, we are having a meet-n-greet from 2pm-5pm that same day! This gives everyone time to head home, grab a bite to eat, shower and come back. This will take place at 830 Brookline Street. Light refreshments will be provided. Even if you can’t make the cleanup, come visit with some neighbors at the meet-n-greet!
