Spring Community Service Day

AFSCME Local 965 members will spend Saturday morning, May 22, volunteering for litter pickup and removal at Greathouse Park in south Fayetteville. With the end of the school year, the park will be more heavily used by neighborhood youngsters, so let's help make it a safe and enjoyable experience for them.

Members should arrive by 8:00 a.m. for the project that includes the six-acre playground areas as well as removing debris from the creek. Recent utility work has had an adverse impact on the public areas. Equipment and supplies will be provided.

Directions: Greathouse Park is located south of 15th St. Turn south off 15th Street onto Brooks Ave. (Brooks is opposite of the Pinnacle Foods plant & runs along the RV Lot on the opposite corner from Baum Stadium). Then turn left onto Boone St & go a block to the parking lot at the corner of Boone St. & Price Ave.

Hope to see you there!!!

UPDATE: Brother Lioneld Jordan, Mayor of Fayetteville, joined us for the park cleanup.
