Blogger's Note: The following announcement was provided by Twila Fisher, the manager of community and economic development at The Hill School and the head of the Hobart's Run revitalization effort.
This Saturday Hobart's Run will hold its second block clean up, this time right next to campus on the 700 block of Beech Street.
The clean-up will begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon, and volunteers are welcome for whatever amount of time possible -- every bit helps.
As with the first block clean up, volunteers will primarily be picking up trash from sidewalks and streets, sweeping sidewalks and walkways, planting flowers where possible (including planters outside of Rickett's Center/Olivet BGC), offering LED bulbs to residents for their porch lights, and giving away flowers to residents who participate in a short survey.
There will also be a dumpster available for all Hobart's Run residents for disposal of bulk items, and a electronics recycling drop off.
A few volunteers to provide live music from the set up area in the grassy area at the corner of Beech and Sheridan streets are being sought. A sound system will be available; just contact Fisher so she can sign you up.
