Earth Day 2009 and the Polish Hill Neighborhood Cleanup


It seems like only yesterday that stalwart volunteers last set out to pick up bottles, cans, and other trash along the streets, side lots, stairs and pathways of Polish Hill.  Alas, the job is never done; litter accumulates, time passes.  It’s time again for the neighborhood spring cleanup.

This is is more fun than it sounds.  It’s a chance to walk the streets of Polish Hill, meet other residents, get a bit of a workout, and feel a sense of accomplishment–the neighborhood looks so nice afterwards.  The PHCA will lend you a pair of work gloves, we have bags, we have coffee, sodas, water,  and snacks.  Saturday is supposed to be warm and sunny.

Communities around the country and around the world are celebrating Earth Day by cleaning up their own small section of the earth.  We hope you will join us and clean up this fine neighborhood.  Meet at the Polish Hill Civic Association office at 3060 Brereton Street.  The cleanup will get started around 10 and will probably last for about 3 hours.  For more information, call the PHCA at 412.681.1950.
