We had close to 60 volunteers for the East Cambridge Clean Up Day on Saturday, and they weren't your average everyday volunteers, they were ROCKSTAR volunteers.
We left Cambridge Street spotless and weed free. Then we went on to mulch EVERY tree well from Second Street all the way to Columbia. This was an enormous effort and we sincerely thank everyone who participated, especially local business owners, The East Cambridge Families Group, Frisoli Youth Center, and EC Dog Owners Group. Also thanks to Living Proof who put a group together from their office to join us. It was truly a community effort.
Another thank you to Susana Segat at CCTV who gave The Clean Up Day some great coverage on her blog and got some great interviews with volunteers.
We are following up with businesses owners and encourage them to keep the street looking great for the summer months and continue the great work of the volunteers. The flower baskets will be here soon and EC businesses, residents, and visitors will have even more reason to be proud of the neighborhood,
I had wanted to post the group picture, but I'm having some technical difficulties, that said I couldn't let the day go by without sending a huge thank you to all who came out. Ill update with a pic as soon as I can.
oh and the shirts looked great too ... you're going to be jealous if you didn't join us ... there's always next year.
