We hope your fall has started off pleasant enough - keeping cozy.
This past Saturday was our annual fall community clean up. You might’ve seen the signs around the neighborhood.
Cleanups are a staple of volunteer activity here in the Wedge, and they are a pride of us here at LHENA. They are an easy, fun way to get some fresh air, meet a neighbor or two or spend a Saturday morning with a friend, all while helping to tidy up the community.
In the spring, we collected over 200 lbs of trash and recyclables, including a car part or two!
On Saturday, we met up around 10:00am at Mueller park for coffee and bagels.
We then were led in a brief training by Katie, our board president. Some people brought their own gloves but there were plenty of extras on site, as well as grippers.
And then we were off!
We worked in teams (and brought our coffees along for the journey). We returned to the park at 12:00 to weigh the haul. And all in all, we collected over 83 pounds of trash, 22.5 of which were recyclable!
Thank you to everyone who came out to help tidy up our community. :)
P.S. We’ve got a leaf cleanup scheduled for November 17th, so mark your calendars for that.
Our community wine tasting fundraiser is tonight! Don't have tickets yet? Snag 'em online by NOON today for $25. Tickets will also be available at the door ($35).
Meet neighbors, sample over 400 varieties of wine, and enjoy an array of delicious food from Uptown restaurants - all for a good cause!
