We are organizing a clean sweep of the Pocket area around Atlantic Avenue.  It will take place on June 24 at 10:00 AM.  We’ll meet in the Rec Center parking lot and fan out from there.  Bags will be provided by the city.  Afterward we can gather at Salvator’s for lunch.  Come help us make our neighborhood a little cleaner.  For questions or ideas, contact Kevin Wilson at (315)292-8306.

No Winter Pocket Meetings

There will be no Pocket meeting on Monday, 14 November. We’re going to take a hiatus from meetings through the holidays and winter months. We plan to pick up again in March, with the first meeting of 2017, planned for Monday, 13 March. We’ll be focusing readying the gardens for the 2017 season and discussing other plans for the spring & summer. We’re looking for expanded participation from the neighborhood. There’s lots that we can do but are limited by the small numbers who are involved.

Thanks for your support in 2016, we look forward to seeing you all again in 2017!
