Followup: Warm words for Delridge Green Up volunteers

When we dropped by Delridge Community Center at noontime Saturday, our quick pic captured only a glimpse of the volunteer power behind Delridge Green Up. Last night, Holli Margell from the North Delridge Neighborhood Council e-mailed WSB to share these photos and warm words for those who pitched in (including “early team” arrivals in the top photo, with Nancy Folsom in front wielding Adopt-A-Street supplies):

A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped make Delridge Green Up a success!

We enjoyed chocolate cookies from Jennifer Knutson, fruit from Kirsten Smith, hot beverages from Amanda Leonard and Holli Margell.

Our volunteers spruced up Delridge Park by picking up trash, weeding and mulching, and our Adopt A-Street Team cleaned up Delridge Way.

Karrie Kohlhaas refreshed our Welcome to Delridge Sign, which was completed with help from Amanda Leonard – Thanks to Pete Spalding for the paint!

Tasha Mosher and her daughter Ilah show off some “treasures” found while picking up trash to our youngest weeding volunteer, Cooper Margell.

Patrick Baer finished up the mulched bed. Our weeds pile almost equaled the mulch pile.

Though NDNC’s next meeting isn’t until next month, you can connect with Delridge-area leaders this week – as the Delridge Neighborhoods District Council meets at 7 Wednesday night, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (the stately brick building in the background of the last photo above).
