It’s My Park Day, St Nicholas Park – TRASH Project Clean Up, Saturday, May 18th at 10:00 AM

Seems we went from Winter right into Summer.  Temperatures in the 70s is forecast for Saturday and it will be a great day to apply sun block and hat and head to St Nicholas Park for the biggest Clean-up of the year!  Join Trash Project (have you seen those pink polka dot fashionista trash bags?) and Friends of St Nicholas Park to bag over-winter leaves and trash and help get our park ready for the season. We will be there from 10am to 1pm and would appreciate seeing you for an hour, two hours, whatever you can spare for the day.

There is also Shred Fest which is scheduled in St Nicholas Park at the same time.  As the saying goes, “kill two birds with one stone” – shred and bag trash.  Hope to see you!
