FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF and help your neighborhood shine this Saturday by helping us out with the I-235 clean up. Our neighborhood shares its boundary with the freeway between 42nd and 31st Streets and it is our responsibility to help keep it clear of trash and debris. Join us for a few hours of exercise and neighborliness Oct. 12 from 8-10 a.m.; Volunteers will meet at 7:50 AM behind the Fire station at 42nd and Pleasant. There will be bagels and coffee before we start. The clean up will take about 2 hours. Dress for the weather, wear work clothes and be prepared for tall wet grass. All ages above 14 are welcome.
