Main Street Takoma Clean-Up Day
Main Street Takoma's Annual Spring Clean-Up Day is on and organizers are calling for volunteers to help make the city sparkle. Activities will include picking up litter, mulching tree boxes, weeding and planting flowers.
Gathering points are at Laurel Avenue by the clock tower, BY Morrison Par at Takoma Junction, and Triangle Park at 4th and Blair in the District.
Members of Main Street Takoma will be on hand at each location to provide gloves and bags for trash removal, and mulch and plantings for the gardening work. Those who want to help are encouraged to bring their own gardening gloves and tools. Main Street Takoma is a community-based initiative of the Old Takoma Business Association. And don't forget - middle and high school students can earn Student Service Learning hours for their Montgomery County Public School graduation requirement.
