Great Indy Cleanup Thank You!!!
A huge “thank you!” goes out to all the volunteers who came out on a cold Saturday morning last weekend for the Great Indy Cleanup! The Near Eastside can boast about 300 volunteers from the neighborhood, another 350 from area churches, and a great group of guys from both IREF and Duvall. It was a wonderful day and a great chance to get to know your neighbors while working hard!
Several neighborhoods have pictures on their Facebook pages and you can find more here: NES Community Builder Flickr
