Spring Clean and Green wrap up, Winnemac Park in the news!

Over 30 people (and some of their kids) came out to the 2nd Annual Spring Clean and Green on Saturday morning at Winnemac Park...despite the snow on the ground.  Ouch!  The event was in concert with the City-wide Spring Clean and Green Earth Day celebrations supported by the 47th and 40th Wards Aldermen and the Streets and Sanitation Yard.

Check out the video by Northwestern University Medill School Journalist student Jayna Omaye!

Thanks to neighbors Jeffrey Newman, Scott Bloom and Karen Kolb for helping with set up, staffing the registration table and cleaning up! 

 Neighbors register and fill-up on breakfast goodies and was cold!  
Hard work = strawberries and donuts!

Neighbors also helped identify and mark Ash trees that are in danger of infestation.

We have our bags!
Thank you to the Winnemac Park Advisory Council (email for co-sponsoring the event and to all the neighbors for greening the park!  Watch here for more "meet-up, clean-up" events coming soon.  Even though we have a great and relatively clean park, we found plenty of glass and trash to clean up...keep an eye out!

This year's most interesting find in the park... a 6 ft metal pole!
See you next time!
