It looks like the weather is cooperating in bringing us a beautiful Saturday for Shaw Main Streets' third annual Keep Shaw Beautiful Day. This "cleanup and greenup" event runs from 9am to 1pm. The kickoff at Shaw Junior High School, 925 Rhode Island Avenue, will feature a performance by the award-winning Shaw Junior High School Band. Participants will then pick up their tools and supplies and move to locations throughout central Shaw to weed, plant, and mulch treeboxes, pick up trash, and remove and paint over graffiti. Afterwards, food and refreshments will be provided at Shaw Junior High.
Neighborhood groups participating in this year's event include the Mount Vernon Square Neighborhood Association, Mount Vernon Square Business Alliance, the French Street Neighbors Association, and the Westminster Neighborhood Association.
