Residents who live near Vermont Avenue NW will turn out Saturday for the ninth year in a row to beautify the meridian that runs from S Street  to the Florida Avenue Triangle (see photos from last year).

From 9 am to noon, the volunteers dig, plant, prune, mulch, rake and do general maintenance work on the strip that runs one-quarter mile from S Street through the U Street corridor.

Volunteers should meet at African American Civil War Memorial at U Street and Vermont Avenue NW. Training, tools and other supported will be provided for volunteers. Email Willis at jeffreyhw[AT]yahoo.com to volunteer.
