First PoP Monthly Cleanup Kicked Ass


Thanks to all who turned out Sat. morning (I know there were a few other clean ups scheduled that day). Thanks, also, to Councilmember Bowser for showing her support. But a special thanks to Cynthia for dealing with the city to get garbage bags and a pick up scheduled. We cleaned from the Metro up New Hamphire Ave to and around Grant Circle including the road, some pocket parks and some side streets. I have to say when I walked down New Hampshire Ave later that night I nearly choked up it looked so good. I know that it will get dirty again, but I think we really had a good showing. Plus all sorts of folks on the road and on the street were thanking us for our efforts. So once again, thanks to all who participated.

Next month I’ll work with some pre-existing groups in Columbia Heights and we’ll have a joint clean up. Details to be announced later in May. More photos after the jump including a very interesting find by one participant…

One group appreciates some interesting tree roots:


Before everyone got here, while we were still clean:


And for the most interesting find – $5 and a bullet!
