Thank you, Creek Leaders, Flower Bed Leaders, and all volunteers for your hard work last Saturday morning. Creek Leaders – Gary, Vince and Doug – worked with volunteers to clean up debris from the creek, while Joan and Jan worked on the Alta Vista flower beds. Sandy took photos of the activity. And extra special thanks goes to Kiki for organizing us all and Ron for delivering needed supplies. It was gratifying to see neighbors, even children, get together to maintain the park and creek and to improve the flower beds.
