This Saturday brings the annual citywide Earth Day celebration, where community members adopt projects in their neighborhoods to clean-up and beautify the city of Troy. Specifically, in Lansingburgh we will be focusing on two parks.
First, at the September 11th Memorial (112th Street and 1st Ave) beginning at 9am residents are invited to join to perform clean-up and landscaping. Bette Dinovo and the Friends of Memorial Park will participate, performing work on the beautiful gardens they installed last year. We are seeking volunteers to work alongside them. Please bring a rake and gloves with you. Jim Gordon will be on site to direct volunteers.
Second, at Powers Park a group will be on hand to perform a number of projects throughout the park. Please bring a rake and gloves with you. Vito Ciccarelli will be on site to direct volunteers.
At both locations projects are expected to run until 11:30 - 12:00pm.
A limited number of Earth Day t-shirts will be available on a first come-first serve basis as in years past.
Thank you for your support and if you are unable to attend either of these projects, please consider taking on a beautification project within your community. Initiatives such as this help grow community spirit and a sense of ownership in ones community. Hope you'll be able to join us.
