Arlandria Clean-Up Day, April 18 from 9AM-2PM

Next Saturday will be the first (annual, I hope) Arlandria clean-up day! Here's a flyer in both English and Spanish. We'd like to get a rough head count as David Escobar of My Bakery and Cafe has graciously offered to provide lunch to all volunteers!

Please tell any and all who would be interested. Let us know if you'd like to be a team lead on one of the many small projects we'll be working on.

You'll find the info from the English version of the flyer below:

Snacks and drinks will be available and a late celebratory lunch will be provided to volunteers by My Bakery and Cafe

WHO: Anyone willing and able from Arlandria and beyond!

WHAT: We’ll break into teams and tackle a series of small projects – mulching flower-beds and around trees, weeding, hedge trimming, litter pick-up, and even some flower plantings!

WHERE: We’ll meet in front of My Bakery and Café (3839 Mount Vernon Ave) at 9AM. We’ll be cleaning up all along Mt. Vernon Ave between Four Mile Run and W. Glebe Rd.

WHEN: Saturday April 18, from 9AM – 2PM

WHY: Meet your neighbors, instill pride of ownership in the area, and make Arlandria a more beautiful and appealing place to live, visit, and do business.

HOW: We’ll need people to bring some tools – shovels, hard rakes, gardening tools (spades, etc.) hedge trimmers (cordless preferred), wheelbarrows, and an extra pick-up truck for mulch hauling would be a bonus!
