Get out and help around town this weekend

SoloFloyd, who maintains the Phoenixville Environmental Volunteerism Blog, wrote to let me know about two events that are happening this weekend that could use your help.

The first is a workday for the new Borough park next to Iron Hill by Church Alley. The work day is planned for May 10, 2008 at 10 AM. Click the link for more information from the PEV Blog.

The second chance to help out around town is during the Celtic Street Fair, also being held on Saturday the 10th. The event, which runs from 10am-7pm, needs volunteers to help empty and reline trash cans along Bridge Street. If you are interested, continue to check the PEV Blog as Solofloyd will be providing additional information over the next couple of days.

Also on the Events Calendar on this very blog is the Reservoir Dogs! Park Work Day this Saturday (the 2nd Saturday of each month) from 8 am to noon.

We'll have coffee and donuts for arrivals, then we'll be planting ground cover and native trees, doing general clean-up and creating new wood chip paths.

Come join us!

I notice there are none of the normal complaining bloggers commenting on how they can help make a difference. Amazing how that happens. All of a sudden everyone starts to "turtle up". Step up people!
