Sitting Park Spruce-up – August 14th

The NYC Parks Dept has approved the project to spruce up the triangle sitting park at 67th Av and Queens Blvd. It will take place on Saturday, August 14th from 9:00- 11:00. It’s a small project, nevertheless, our efforts will go a long way in bringing attention to the “park’s” inferior condition.
I need about 10 volunteers to help clean, paint, plant, and prune.
I know it’s the middle of summer, but you would be giving up just 1 or 2 hours of your time and making a big difference in our community.

Tools, gloves, and equipment will be provided.
Breakfast is on the house.
Book raffle will be held.
Wear old clothes.
If you need transportation to the site, let me know.

Free breakfast and raffle for a little sweat equity.
Hey, how simple and worthwhile does a community project get?!

I hope to meet some of you out there on the 14th.

It’s up to us!
