Just a reminder….2014’s Polish the Pearl event is this Saturday, October 11th, the autumnal half of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association’s semi-annual effort to gather like-minded friends to do some litter gathering around our Pearl District neighborhood.
The day starts at Peet’s Coffee (1114 NW Couch) for a free cuppa and to pick up your cleaning supplies. Then it’s out and about the neighborhood picking up whatever’s out there that shouldn’t be. This is an opportunity to meet your neighbors and make some new friends while helping to keep our neighborhood clean and beautiful. Bags, gloves and trash grabbers will be supplied so just bring your sunny disposition!
At 11:30 after the clean-up, we’ll meet up again at Chipotle Mexican Grill (1201 NW Lovejoy) to celebrate and return the cleaning supplies. And there’s a free burrito in it if you’re one of the first 75 people to register. To register for the event, go to www.solv.org and click the REGISTER NOW button. Let’s get together and polish our neighborhood!
