‘We Love Old Town’ clean-up, second Saturday each month at a different location

Please join others between 9 & 11 on the second Saturday of August for our next ‘We Love Old Town’ clean-up.  We then move around the city as each person sees fit.  This event recurs  the 2nd Saturday of each month but at a different location each time. Watch this news spot for next month's location.  Following is a list for discussion + any additional ideas:

  • Adopt-A-Block    I enjoy keeping two blocks on Prince between Union & the water swept.
  • CCC (Click, Call, Connect)
  • Consider hosting a table at Xmas Walk parade as Founders Pk. Community Assoc. does.

We still have plenty of bags & water provided by Steve or Tom from Trader Joes.  Please bring people you know and make people aware of our efforts to honor our Mission:

Citizens engaged in a partnership with local businesses and the City of Alexandria to keep Old Town clean, attractive & well maintained.
