Lunch time littler cleanup

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle
Every Friday from noon to 1 p.m., a group of dedicated volunteers meet at the southwest corner of S. Harris Avenue and Sullivant Avenue to undertake a massive challenge: cleaning up one of the most littered corridors on the westside. Organized by community advocate Lisa Boggs, the lunch time cleanup crew traverses approximately 27 blocks, picking up all kinds of litter with their grabbers in order to beautify the area and get trash off the street. “Even though we all know these roads will be partially full of trash later today, we keep coming out because we know that the stuff we have in our bags right now will be off our streets forever,” said Boggs. Pictured here after another successful lunch time cleanup event on March 1 are (from left to right) Bill Hedrick, Lisa Boggs, and Jim Boggs. Although not pictured at the completion of the event, included in the afternoon cleanup crew were Janine Bourdo, Carla Carr, and Gale Gray. Boggs encouraged those who may have a free hour on Friday afternoon to come out and join their cleanup efforts.
