Lots of Love for Guerin!!

Posted: May 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

Last Saturday, May 12th was billed as “Love your Park” day in Philadelphia. I can state unequivocally that Guerin Rec Center, at 16th and Jackson got some great TLC last Saturday. Many thanks to those that helped out with trash removal, weeding, painting, tree pruning and planting of flowers. Wow- what a difference!

Special thanks to Guerin Rec Manager, Debbie Darroyo for all of her efforts in supplying tools, as well as in her recruitment of volunteers which included the Guerin maintenance staff.

Would be great to have this event on a more frequent basis to keep our park looking clean, bright, and to keep it safe for the kids. I guess in theory, each civic conducts some park cleanup as part of regular cleanups- as time and volunteers allow of course. NCA is no different. We really need more assistance, more volunteers in our beautification efforts.

But, to end on a positive note, the before and after of our park-maintenance effort Saturday was quite evident. Walk by and take a look! Some pictures are to follow here at the blog soon.
