FOLLOWUP: MLK Day of Service in Highland Park

We told you on Friday about the Highland Park Improvement Club/HP Action Committee plan for today’s MLK Day of Service. Tonight, we received a report and photos to share with you!

We wanted to thank everyone who turned out today, 23 folks put in over 52 hours of time to help pick up, spruce up and do demo work here in Highland Park.

We filled multiple bags with roadside trash from the Holden/Highland Park Way detour route [please don’t litter folks] and from adjacent Riverview Park and throughout the neighborhood.

A small number of highly motivated, dedicated volunteers worked to pull down 100-year-old plaster from the Club dance hall ceiling preparing for the refresh to come. Special thanks to Peter, Bruce, Billy, Greg, Emory, and Shawn for a dusty job well done!

So grateful to all and thankful we live in this caring, involved community!

P.S. Your next chance to get involved with the Highland Park community is at HPAC’s monthly meeting, 7 pm Wednesday, January 27th – an agenda preview and participation link are on the HPAC website.

    BRAVO!! I saw these wonderful volunteers as I was coming up Highland Parkway on Monday very appreciative of your efforts in cleaning up this area.  Thank you

    The crew who helped restore the Dance Club BRAVO I know what a dirty dusty job it is to take a room down to the studs that is lined with lath and plaster.
