Despite a late August date, the clean up on the morning of Saturday, August 25, 2012 was blessed with relatively cool weather. We base camped at Elysian Heights Elementary at Baxter and Echo Park – big thanks to Elysian Height Elementary and Principal Veronica Herrera Lynch for being such a great host!
About a dozen volunteers showed up including our in-coming US Congressman Adam Schiff, and a couple of CD13 candidates.
Everyone – including our politician volunteers worked a four block stretch along Echo Park Avenue, clearing the sidewalks and gutters of trash and debris, and rooting out weeds in the tree wells. We also had two trucks that drove up and down Echo Park Avenue and the immediate side streets to pick up bulky items and drop off to the dumpster that CD13 arranged for us.
All-in-all, it was a very productive morning, thanks to all that attended! Stand by for news on the next community clean up.
