A Volunteer Work Party on Saturday, April 20, 9-11 AM helped clean up a new dedicated area for outdoor play.

A Boy Scout has created the place with stumps to jump on and more. We cleaned up the adjacent area of sticks, weeds, and a bit of ivy.

Thank you to 30 neighbors and teens from Youth Action Council who cleaned up our new outdoor nature area. They moved lots of bark chips and removed Ivy and Herb Robert. Great time to also celebrate Earth Day. Thanks again to everyone.
