Lending a Hand: Community Cleanups

About two weeks ago, I joined some of our Plainfield neighbors in a community cleanup of Leland Park. Volunteers removed brush, branches, and other debris in anticipation of a wonderful spring and summer. Our children, among other residents, use the park for a number of healthy activities. As a former teacher at Cook Elementary School, which adjoins the park, I am all too familiar with how much debris accumulates there. It's up to us to lend a hand and keep our city's parks clean--Public Works can't do it all by themselves. Also, the annual spring cleanup of the Plainfield Public Library's grounds will take place on Saturday, May 12, beginning at 9:00 am. Rebecca has posted it on her city council blog here. We hope you will join us--community service benefits us all, so we must do what we can for our children, parents, neighbors, and everyone else in Plainfield. Here are a few photos from the Leland Park cleanup, which was put together by the Netherwood Neighbors and Friends of Sleepy Hollow--look at what we can do if we all work together!

Yours truly,
