Though the recent cold and rain makes it hard to believe, spring truly is just around the corner. Winter is finally relinquishing its icy grip and it’s time to clean up the old leaves and debris that have accumulated over the last five months.
Join me for the 27th annual 49th Ward SPRING CLEAN-UP!
This year’s clean-up takes place on Saturday, April 22nd. We’ll meet at 9:00 a.m. for coffee and rolls at my 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis), and then we’ll fan out across the neighborhood, picking up trash, cutting down weeds and planting flowers. If you have an area you want to work, that’s great! Otherwise, we’ll assign you to an area that needs attention.
We’ll return to my office at 12:00 Noon for a fabulous “Taste of the 49th Ward” with food donated from a vast array of 49th Ward restaurants, guaranteed to satisfy every culinary taste.
Come by yourself or with a group! We’ll supply shovels, rakes, brooms and garbage bags.
This is a wonderful time to organize your block club, condominium association, school group, church group, or other organization to come together to help get the community ready for spring. Bring the kids!
We ask that you register in advance so we can plan for enough food and equipment for the day. You may register by emailing my office and providing the information requested at the bottom of this page. Or call my Ward Service Office at 773-338-5796.
I hope to see you on Saturday, April 22nd, at 9:00 am.
