Plea for Help

Hello Neighbors

As you may know, the 22nd Annual Neighborhood Cleanup is going to be on Sat. April 28. Generally, our area gets a pretty small turnout, though that small dedicated group manages to do a great job getting the trash cleared from the Morton Street Woods.

This year, we'd like to be a bit more ambitious and are asking you to join in by volunteering to clean up either the Woods or the street between the Woods and the corner of Hyde Park Ave and Morton. That stretch, running from the FitzInn lot to the Morton St. woods badly needs our attention, so please consider volunteering (and recruiting your friends, family and neighbors) to join us on Sat. morning.

The cleanup will be from 9 am to 1pm at which time the city picks up the tools and our trash bags. If you can't come for all four hours, come for what you can manage.

If you are able to volunteer, please send an email to Nigel Shaw at to let us know (so that we can be sure to order enough trash bags, rakes, etc.) and most importantly, THANKS.

We look forward to seeing you on Sat. April 28th.
