In celebration of our 10th Birthday, please join us in a park clean-up project in nearby Cherry Valley Park!
This will be a fun (and kid-friendly) way to show our neighbors appreciation for everything they’ve done to welcome us on Quincy Street over these past 10 years. We’ll be working shoulder-to-shoulder with members of the Cherrydale Citizens Association to remove invasives, add wood-chips to the path and trails and cut and remove dead branches.
Arlington County will deliver a pile of wood chips and a dumpster. The Citizens Association will recruit “Master Gardeners” to serve as our crew chiefs. All we need from YOU is to join a crew! Come for one hour or for all four! Come say thank you with your willing hearts and your muscles!
Please RSVP at this link to let us know you are coming.
Date: Saturday, November 2 (Rain Date: November 16)
Time: 9 AM – 1 PM
Meeting place: Directions here – Park along Quincy St and walk along 17th road till the road ends abutting the park
Food: Coffee/Donuts, then Pizza will be served
