This morning, a local contractor, Whiting Turner, pulled together a volunteer team from their staff to do the first round of the volunteer work on the soon-to-be community building at 4109 Mt Vernon Ave.
The work included pulling up tiles (they have power tools for this), cleaning the interior walls, and patching the effice on the exterior where the Duron signs used to be. This prep work will allow the building to be painted at the Spring for Alexandria event on May 6.
Several members of city staff were there to oversee and help along with several fans of the park and the farmers market. Stuff is happening. Watch this Space.
