Thanks for a great park cleanup on May 5th!

The WHNA and WPC would like to thank everyone who participated in Saturday's Watsessing Park Cleanup, particularly Essex County (thanks, Tony & Ralph!), the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission, the Essex County Department of Corrections, Coach Carter and his Bengals, and of course, neighbors like you!

It was a beautiful day to be out and about in the park, and not only was litter cleaned up, but volunteers planted the "W" flower garden, the flower barrels, and the Island in the middle of Prospect and Glenwood Avenues. Below are a few scenes from the event.

1) Volunteers gather near the PVSC and County trucks; 2) Volunteers planting the Island while WHNA president Anne Prince calls the Fire Department to ask them to water the plantings for us.


3) Bernard Hamilton and Pat Ritchings lend a hand planting the "W" garden.

Sorry I couldn't make it ! I was tied up at the Bloomfield Health Fair. Here is the slide show with the pictures I took.
