It’s a beautiful day in our neighborhood – the skies are blue, the sun is shining, and the streets are looking better all the time. Many thanks and kudos to all involved with Eliot’s adopt-a-block team. While they may not take credit for the blue skies and sunshine, they most certainly can for the improved look to our streets and avenues.
We’ve had quite a few people sign-up this past quarter, and the ranks of trash-ridders are reflected in things looking as good as they are….mostly. And, because we’re greedy and can always use more volunteers, we’re seeking out more. Maybe yourself? You know you want to be a part of helping Eliot look its best, and I can show you how it’s done.
All you do is contact me, Jody, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 971-320-8594, and I’ll get you set up with trash bags and gloves – plus, I have just a few more picker-uppers as well. If you’re one of the first two lucky winners to contact me, they’re yours. We’ll decide what block you’d like to “adopt,” you care for it like the adoptee it is, and then you’ll even be entered into a contest every three months where you could win a $100.00 gift certificate to your friendly New Season’s market.
What?!….crazy simple, right?….and prizes to boot! So what are you waiting for?…..
But before you do, let me announce the current winner of this quarter’s New Season’s gift certificate. Come on down, Laura and Michael Livingston! Laura and Michael take care of parts of Williams near Tillamook and around other areas as they walk their dogs. It can’t be overstated how grateful we are for all those critters who get their humans out for cleaning. Thanks, Dot and Pipa..
Please consider joining Laura and Michael, and the 6(!) other exemplary volunteers who joined this quarter….. big shout out to Richard DeWolf, Moses Wrosen, Laura Atkinson, Pamela Sery, Linda Kading, and Tyler Brunhart. You do Eliot proud.
