From John Johnson:
The neighborhood and civic associations in the area have arranged with the city to have a number of Alley Clean Ups this year.
The three Alley Clean Ups are scheduled for:
- March 14th, prior to the Irish Festival
- September 5th prior, to the Cycling Championship
- November 28th, prior to the CHA Holiday Festival
The main purpose of the first clean-up is to prepare for the Irish Festival and Hill Topper 5k that take place on 21 and 22 March.
The March 14th Alley Clean Up will begin with volunteers gathering at 9 AM at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and 25th Street. The volunteers will be divided to work on one of three City garbage trucks. Usually the alley cleaning event last for about 2 hours or, when the trucks are full.
Alley Clean Ups only work if volunteers pitch-in. Let’s show our community pride and join in to clean up our neighborhood
and the alleys.
