    Joan Harvey at ONS CleanupNeighborhood volunteers gathered on a beautiful early fall morning September 24 at Great Oak Commons Park to get organized for the annual fall clean up, sponsored by Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, the Old Northside Neighborhood Association and Old Northside Foundation. After enjoying doughnuts and coffee supplied by the Rob Measel team at F.C. Tucker Company, volunteers divided up into zones to pick up trash and clear debris from neighborhood alleys and streets.

    Just a few hours of effort made a big impact on the trash that has accumulated this season along our streets. As always, neighbors help by keeping trash picked up in front of their homes.  It was great to get encouragement too along the way from passerby who called out “thank you!” as we picked up plastic bottles and soggy pieces of pizza! Thanks to Keep Indianapolis Beautiful for supplying trash bags, gloves, grabbers, and a dumpster for the event. It’s a fun and easy way to beautify the neighborhood and meet new friends. The next neighborhood cleanup will take place in Spring 2023 and planning begins soon.
