Spring Clean Up Re-cap

Residents, families, friends and volunteers all gathered together on Saturday, May 9th to pick up litter, helping to make the Cleveland Neighborhood sparkle.  We had enthusiastic men, women and children working together; block by block to make Cleveland the beautiful place we all know it to be.  We had a great time getting to know one another, hearing valuable input, concerns and suggestions from individuals all while giving back to the community.  It was a good time had by all which ended with a celebration lunch provided by the gracious members of the Luther Memorial Lutheran Church.  The Cleveland Neighborhood Association sends out a HUGE thank you to all the neighbors who volunteered their time to make this happen!
Thank you to Kevin Gregory, Cleveland Resident and Crime and Safety Co-Chair, for leading the event. Micha McDonald and Anne Reirdon for cooking homemade sloppy joes, North Vegans for contributing vegan sloppy joes, Luther Memorial Church and Pastor Bee Vang for bringing a bunch of volunteers and graciously opening up their kitchen and dining hall for our post-clean-up celebration! Also to the Cookie Cart for donating cookies for the event, Lucy Craft Laney K 8 Elementary School for donating May Day basket giveaways, Juxtaposition Arts for screenprinting our t-shirts, U of M Master Gardeners for bringing knowledge and resources and the City of Minneapolis for providing clean-up supplies and resources about recycling.
