Early Friday morning we learned a scheduled clean-up of George Ward Park and the Green Springs off-leash dog area is still on for tomorrow at 8 a.m. It sounds like a great way to wrap up National Volunteer Week for 2013.
The current forecast is calling for showers to begin arriving about that time, but they’re hoping they’ll be able to get a large number of folks out in order to finish as quickly as possible. Organizers are asking that volunteers meet in the parking lot between the dog park and the ball field. They’re also asking they wear sturdy shoes or boots and to bring work gloves in addition to any pruners, clippers, etc. They’ll provide safety vests, garbage bags, the dumpster, and ‘picker-uppers.’
We’ll do our best to find out if the clean-up is postponed due to weather (and to notify you via this post in case it happens).
