Island Rec to commemorate MLK Day in weed removal party

Press release:

Volunteers are needed to join Island Rec for a weed removal party at the Lafarge Property (the gravel pit) for a Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 20, 9a.m. to noon.

It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day and through your service, we shall overcome the blackberries, fennel and scotch broom growing at the Lafarge Property. Bring your own loppers, weed wrenches, rakes, shovels or a hungry goat; some tools will be available to borrow.

Wear sturdy shoes, gloves and outdoor clothing to protect you from thorns. Meet up afterwards to celebrate our success at The Bean – free coffee provided.

For more information or to sign up, call Island Rec at 378-4953. “Make it a day on, not a day off!”
