Thanks to all who came out in the rain to help spring clean the neighborhood on April 25! Teams focused on the areas around Bezazian Library and the post office, as well as the parkway garden at Argyle and Broadway. We also collected a number of books/DVDs and electronics for reuse and recycling. Even our youngest helpers were in good spirits!
