Trash Bash VII - 4/23 9am - FREE FOOD & PRIZES
FREE RAFFLE OF PRIZES, including Apple iPod Mini, for all those who help clean!
Sunday, April 23, 2006 at 9am is the start of Trash Bash VII! Our annual neighborhood clean-up day (which coincides with Earth Day, being celebrated locally the day before), is the time for residents & workers of the neighborhood to gather together and clean up the streets & sidewalks of assorted trash and weeds. We will meet at the Egghouse (229 Harrison at Third Street) to get signed in, grab equipment, and get block "assignments". Clean until around noon (or later if you're so inclined) and then head back to the Egghouse for...
FREE BARBEQUE FOR ALL AT 1pm - WHETHER YOU CLEAN OR NOT!
Yes, that's right. ANYONE can join the barbeque for burgers, veggie burgers, and all the trimmings. FREE. FOOD. At 2pm we'll have the raffle of prizes for all those who cleaned.
PLEASE RSVP! Please send an email to email@example.com or call Joanna at Jack London Mail (or leave message) at 510.893.4100. Also let us know if you are vegetarian or not. We want to make sure we have enough tools, food, & tasty beverages.
Trash Bash is a Jack London District Association event, although you need not be a member of JLDA to join the fun. And yes, it is fun, despite spending your time cleaning. I remember the first year we participated - long before opening Jack London Mail - and we met some really great people that live(d) in Phoenix Lofts. Each year I've met more new and fun people.
