Remember that community meeting about Dolores Park last week? Well, a good outcome of the meeting is that there is a solid group of volunteers forming with the specific goal of helping keep the park clean. They’ll be meeting a number of times every month to help make the park beautiful. Unfortunately they are not maintaining an email list, so who knows how their long-term organizing efforts will end up being, but you can show up tomorrow to get involved.
Our first meeting, a WORKING MEETING, will be this Sunday, Sept. 20 from 2-4 pm at the Liberty Bell at 19th and Dolores. If possible, wear green or white T-shirts to stand out, as we want people to notice what we’re up to, and to make a visible difference. We chose this time precisely because we want to be working in the park when there are a lot of people around. Bring gloves, litter grabbers, etc. if you have them, but we’ll have plenty of supplies provided by Rec&Park and Dolores Park Church, so don’t worry if you don’t have anything to bring. We’ll spread out and do litter pick up, graffiti abatement, raking around trash receptacles, and anything else that helps beautify the park. Before we go to work, we’ll briefly discuss the latest Rec&Park improvements in the park, set a date for our next meeting, and discuss where we go from here.
