I promise you, the snow WILL be gone by the time of the Wellington Park Wake-up!!
The NewtonServes volunteer scheduling website is up and running! We are seeking volunteers to help with the “Wellington Park Wake-up” on Sunday, April 26 from 12:30 – 3:30. Please sign up today: http://www.newtoncommunitypride.org/NewtonSERVES-volunteer.php
Our goal this year is to have 20 families from the neighborhood join us in waking up our park. This is YOUR park and we depend on neighbors to put in just 2-3 hours in the beginning of the year to wake up the park and get it ready for a full year of use. In prior years many indicated competing commitment to help at Franklin school and other projects, please consider helping at school in the morning and at the park in the afternoon, even for just an hour or two, we really need your help.
If you’d like to help but can not come on April 26, let us know. There is always additional work that still needs to be done and we’d love your help the following weekend.
Volunteers will rake, mulch, weed, plant, fertilize, prune, pick up litter, pull invasive plants and more. There’s lots to get done and we really need your help to do it all. If you do not have tools don’t worry, we will provide them, just come in your gardening clothes.
Donations are also needed. The city provide zero funds and very little support for maintaining the park, we generally spend about $300 each year to care for the park. Please consider sending your donation for $5 – $20 to Bonnie Bender, 52 Southgate Park, West Newton, MA 02465. Make check payable to Bonnie Bender. Donations cover the cost for plants, fertilizers, watering cans, hoses and other tools and equipment.
Please sign up today! http://www.newtoncommunitypride.org/NewtonSERVES-volunteer.php
Thanks, and we’re looking forward to seeing you on the 26th,
RAIN DATE: the following Sunday.
