It was chilly and sunny the morning of January 5, 2019 as seven volunteers worked from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to clean up the Broad Ripple Park recycling area. Many thanks to Joanne Durbin who initiated the event. Thanks also go to Carl Scott, who saw the post on Next Door Neighborhood, and Barbara Ralston, who happened by on a walk and asked how she could help. (We had plenty of brooms, rakes, shovels and trash bags!) Friends of Broad Ripple Park volunteers included Mary Crowley, Kathy Rosenberg, Morgan Bennett (who made seven or eight trips to the front parking lot, hauling the 30 Christmas trees dumped in the recycling area), and Tom McCain.
