FOCP Vice President Ron Hudson organized a work day for Nov. 22. Thanks to volunteers Allen Diggs, Priscilla Ware, Deborah Wiley, John Magill, Lance Vaughan, Art Young, Nate Wilson and Ann Dixon for mulching trees. And a tip of the hat to John Fenton and Jerome from the UCD for bringing supplies.
Future generations will thank 100 members of the South Asia Society and Muslim Students Association for fantastic work in October planting five trees and 500 daffodils on the International Gandhi Day of Service.
Visibility has improved with the pruning efforts of Chris Leswing and Andy Cole. They also did a great job of mulching the new entrance plantings at 45th & Chester.
Lew Mellman's brush with greatness occurred recently when he quickly painted over graffiti on the newly-primed maintenance shed. What a great neighbor!
Student power from USP and FOCP volunteers made some fantastic improvements at the Aug. 23 work day. Students scraped and primed the maintenance shed and hauled mulch to protect dozens of trees. Others gathered trash and dug up remnants of an old iron fence that had been tripping joggers by the 45th Street sidewalk.
