More West Seattle cleanup work tomorrow – plus, the city’s thanks

Last weekend, we told you about Delridge and Pigeon Point volunteers spending a soggy, breezy Saturday morning making their neighborhood nicer (here’s our story). Tonight, two notes: First, Rose Feliciano (left) will be out raking up leaves again tomorrow morning around 9 am along the bike trail by the bridge. She mentioned this on the Pigeon Point e-mail list; we asked if we could mention it here in case anyone wanted to help out, and she said OK, adding “the way to access the bike path is the north end of 22nd Avenue SW.” (Here’s a map.) Meantime, the folks at Seattle Public Utilities asked if we would publish this public thank you to Rose and everyone else out working last weekend – PLUS all the other cleanup program volunteers peninsula-wide:

I’d like to thank Nancy Folsom, Rose Feliciano, the Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council, the North Delridge Neighborhood Council-and all the other West Seattle volunteers who are making a difference in their neighborhoods by participating in Seattle’s Adopt-a-Drain and Adopt-a-Street programs. These volunteer programs continue to grow, showing that we all value the quality of life that Seattle offers. Adopting a street or a drain is a great way to get to know your neighbors. Please give me a call if you would like help getting involved: 684-7647.

Thanks again, folks!

Adopt-A-Drain/Adopt-A-Street Coordinator

Both programs have more info online, too – Adopt-A-Street here, Adopt-A-Drain here.

    A big thanks to Rosie and those who have helped. As a sometime bike commuter I really appreciate it because that sidewalk was getting really slippery with leaves until Rosie and the other volunteer(s) jumped in last week. A big thanks!

    *blush* What a nice note from Mr. Stinson. I’d like, in turn, to thank the intrepid folks who came out last weekend–it really was miserable weather. (I’m not sure they want me thank them by name, but they know who they are!)

    I really appreciate that people put the AASs on their schedules and make it a priority in their lives. Thank you!!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
