Great Indy Cleanup 2013

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
