As you're formulating your resolutions for 2007, consider one or more of these neighborhood-enhancing commitments:
1. Pick up at least 5 pieces of trash outside a day.
2. Volunteer in our neighborhood. Here are a few options; contact the volunteer coordinators for specific opportunities:
+ Voulunteer at the new (ugh--modular) Library and help make the best of the temporary library situation. To learn more about volunteering at the Library, call Bill Turner, Volunteer Coordinator, at 202.727.4968 or send him email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
+ Volunteer at one of our neighborhood schools. Contact DCPS community relations office at 202.727.0488.
+ Volunteer at the Kennedy Recreatrion Center or at one of the local parks. Contact the Department of Parks and Recreation at email@example.com to choose from a variety of volunteer opportunities ranging from a one-day project to a long-term commitment.
+ Volunteer at Bread for the City. Complete the volunteer application available on their website or contact Valentine Woods, Volunteer Coordinator, to request one at 202.386.7611.
3. Organize and/or participate in a neighborhood watch for your block. Check here for more information.
4. Become a graffiti fighter. Buy paint now and, every other week, paint over tags.
My creativity's tapped after a long night of celebrating--anyone have any resolution suggestions?
I hope everyone had a safe and fun time ringing in 07!!
