UU Parkway Mile Cleanup Job Well Done Again!

Posted by David Dawson

Posted on June 11, 2016

Here’s a hearty “Huzzah!” to a wonderful crew of folks who showed up today to clean up the UU mile of the American River Parkway!  With so many of our regular Parkway Stewards away at Camp Norge this weekend, only a light turnout was expected for today’s cleanup activity.  Surprise!  Thirteen UU’s did an amazing job of picking up and packing out what… maybe 250 pounds of trash- and finished the job in high spirits with conversation after at Panera.
Many thanks to all for a big job, well done, and the fun and comaraderie that attended it all.

  1. Is there a trash pickup happening tomorrow?

  2. Yes, indeed! Here, in part, is the text of an email I sent to those who have expressed interest in helping on the UU mile.

    “Second Saturday is coming up in a few days, giving us a chance once again to make a difference picking up trash on the UU Mile of the American River Parkway. The beautiful weather and the Independence Day holiday have probably ensured that we’ll have plenty to do. It should be a pleasant day on Saturday; only 85 degrees and gentle breezes are forecast.

    So, we’ll meet as usual, between 8:45-9:00 AM in the parking lot at the west end of Northrop Avenue, next to the levee, near Panera off Howe Avenue. If this will be your first time to assist, I’ll get your contact info and brief you on our cleanup activity. We’ll clean up trash from the Parkway until 10:30 and rejoin at that time at the foot of the levee stairway for a quick photo of our crew and the results of our work. Coffee and conversation afterward at Panera are always a pleasant option afterward.”

    I hope to see you out there!
