A message from Eva McCann:

Hello Friends of our Parks,

Come on out and celebrate the beauty of our Parks and help pick up garbage on Saturday morning, April 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Join a group in Dubkin Park at Fargo and Ashland, Triangle Park, Harold Washington Playlot, and Willye White Park. I personally will be at Willye White Park.

Come with plastic bags for garbage, grocery bags will do just fine, some gloves and a smile on your face to greet others who will be there to help make our parks cleaner and more beautiful.
Let our parks know that we care about how they look. Parks are living things too you know.

Hope someone brings a camera to take pictures to share and we can send them to Friends of the Parks and the Chicago Park District to let them know we are out there doing our part to keep our parks attractive, and welcoming for all.

We can meet up at Charmers at Jarvis & Greenview and talk about the interesting items we found in the parks, then go on our merry ways to celebrate the rest of the day and enjoy the long anticipated spring weather.

By the way there is another city wide Clean and Green on Saturday, April 25th. The Alderman's office will provide, brooms, shovels, gloves, really big bags and refreshments, 9:00 - 12:00. Folks will be gathering to clean the streets and parkways. For more information about the city's clean & green call 338-5796.

Hope to see you in the Parks on April 18th and many thanks for all of your help.

Parents, Grandparents and other Adult mentors are encouraged to bring their 'young people' to participate. It's a great opportunity to educate them about the importance of taking responsibility for and care of our neighborhood and it's parks.
