Community Board 6 sent this:
Make a clean sweep of your home and your neighborhood by joining the Park Slope Civic Council at the Fall Civic Sweep, CB 6's annual autumn beautification, clean-up and recycling event:
Sunday, October 17, 10 am to 2 pm (rain or shine)
Starting at M.S. 51, 5th Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets
Put on your old clothes and join other volunteers in painting over graffiti, mulching trees, planting daffodil bulbs, raking leaves, picking up litter and other projects. You can also bring unwanted electronic devices (old t.v.'s, computers, toasters, etc.) for recycling by Greg's Express.
There will be refreshments and bluegrass music by Vincent Cross and Good Company, and CB 6 will provide all tools and supplies. Roadify will be on hand to describe their free service to get real-time information about open parking spots and bus and subway arrival times. "I Made Park Slope Cleaner Today" stickers will be given to all volunteers. Community Service vouchers will also be available.
After beautifying the neighborhood, continue celebrating fall at the annual Harvest Festival next door in Washington Park from 11 am to 3 pm with pony rides, pumpkin painting and more family fun.
