My Park Day at MacDonald Park

One of the event's organizers, Steve Melnick, sends out a sincere BIG thanks to all who participated in Saturday's community volunteer event, saying "It was a lot of work, but we accomplished practically everything as just over 2 1/2 hours! An extra thanks to the Rutgers students who drove in from Newark to help out.  And thanks to the NYC Parks Dept crew along with Partnerships For Parks coordinator, Nichole Henderson, for their support. A big thanks to Ed O'Neil,  our district gardener, for showing us the ropes."

Some numbers:
40 bags of leaves picked up
500+  daffodil bulbs planted 
7 trash bins painted
30 seasonal plants planted
22 volunteers - priceless
