Kudos to the stalwarts who worked through the rain yesterday! Our Love-your-block team gathered trash and weeded and mulched in Chester Park and round the blocks. Bud was there to get us started. Jake and Meredith were first to get into it. Rudy and Jim fetched us brooms, rakes and shovels. Alice captained the gardens on the odd-numbered side. Josh worked the even-numbered side with David, Danny, Damon and Frank. Michelle worked with Springfield gardeners. Will, Clancy, Eldean and Corbin brought family energy to the team. Elyssa and others cleared trouble from the raised beds. Sam brought us tee-shirts and encouragement. Laura cheered us on. Sara led the wrap-up and returned the tools. Carol was totally proud.
