Last Saturday, April 28, a crew of volunteers took to Vermont Avenue NW to do annual clean up, weeding, mulching and other maintenance. They planted a new tree and seasonal flowers, and added a paver path at the African American Civil War Memorial on U Street NW.
It was 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). Contact Jeffrey Willis at jeffreyhw[AT]yahoo.com if you want to get involved with the group.
Major sponsors of the event were Mark Meyerdirk at Urban Brokers Realty, Gerard & Trish DiRuggiero at Urban Land Realty and Andy Duffy at Duffy’s Irish Pub. Other sponsors are Nellie’s Sports Bar (breakfast for volunteers), the 9:30 Club, Ft. Myers Construction, American Ice Company Pub, CVS, DC FEMS and King Gas.
