We could use some volunteers to help us spread out the compost on our garden beds.

Would be helpful to bring a shovel and large bucket/wheel barrow.

Contact Alan Borzillo if you have any questions at alanb914@verizon.net

Volunteer gardeners needed for Normandy Park

Tags:

Hello Neighbors,

Our flower beds at Normandy Park are looking neglected, and we would like to spruce them up for our SABA 5K (Sunday,Oct.23rd).

There are many ways to help:

1) Fall Clean Up on Saturday, Oct. 15th from 10:00-12:00 (if not raining). Bring your shovels and gardening gloves and help us pull weeds.

2) Volunteer to "Adopt a Spot"--it can be a small or big section to maintain throughout the year. Just drop Emi Lievano an email at emiliacl@mindspring.com so that she can keep track of the areas.

3) Pull a weed or two--as you walk by or play at the park.

4) Volunteer to coordinate a garden clean-up/planting with a group of friends and neighbors. This would be good for a boy or girl scout troop activity.

Your help will keep our neighborhood looking beautiful!

We can't do it without you!

Thank You, 4th of July Volunteers

Tags:

Many thanks to all you, wonderful neighbors and friends, for making this 4th of July event a fun time for our children.

And many thanks to the members of the HAC (Haverford Athletic Club) for organizing the field games and for their generosity of left-over food/drinks.

I hope that many of you can help us next year, either helping behind the scenes, loaning us needed items, or assisting in the various activities that day.

Neighbors getting together to help out and enjoy the various events/activities are what make this neighborhood a great place to live.
