Georgetown Community Spring Clean-up - Saturday, April 9, 2011
The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and the weather is warm. It is time to spruce up everything. The Georgetown Community Spring Clean-up, sponsored by CAG and Georgetown University, will be on Saturday, April 9 from 9 am to noon. Volunteers will gather at the Rose Park flag pole (26th and O Street) and the Volta Park ball field (34th Street and Volta Place) for bagels, juice and coffee before spreading out to various areas of west and east Georgetown. All equipment, including gloves, will be supplied. There will be "Nifty Nippers" available for picking up cans and bottles without bending over and Save the WorldWagons for the kids to use.
After cleaning, everyone will return to Volta Park for a fabulous barbeque by the Georgetown University Grilling Society. There are no better hamburgers to be had in all of Washington. Hot dogs, fixings and drinks will round out the fare. This is a family event for everyone, from youngsters to grandparents, and it’s a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors and GU students.
The rain date will be the next day, Sunday, April 10th, but in the afternoon from 2-5 pm. We look forward to seeing everyone come out for this great community event!
