Thank you all who participated in our 1st Semi-annual Block
Beautification Day. It was a long day, but the turnout was great (50+ people) and
we had many spectators. Many onlookers asked for information so
hopefully they can attend the next meetings and expand the great
energy we have as a collective group. I am looking forward to more
days like this in the near future and am very gracious to have
wonderful neighbors like we have on this block.
We were doing such a good job that word spread in the community. For
those of who may not have gotten the chance we got a visit from some
friends City Councilman Mathieu Euguene, 40th Council District and
candidate L. Rickie Tulloch. But, that was not the best part. The
best part was how we all came together and worked side by side to make
our block look and feel better.
whether limited or all day. Everyone's participation was significant
and counted on the larger scale. We opened the eyes of many who were
unaware of who we were or never got the chance to look at our flyers.
We motivated many especially the younger kids who were eager to make a
difference and contribute by any means. Another amazing factor was
neighbors who live in the community, neighboring blocks (about a
handful), stopping by to lend a hand because they love this block more
than the ones they reside on. I am very thankful that we had such a
wonderful day of green harmony.
