The following are just a few of the many things going on in the great Shaw neighborhood this weekend:
1. Inaugural Shaw Monthly Cleanup Saturday Morning - This awesome new monthly event--where you can meet and mingle with neighbors and spruce up a chunk of Shaw--kicks off tomorrow. The forecast looks relatively mild, so you've got no excuse but to have some neighborhood-enhancing fun. Meet at 9:00 AM on Saturday, August 11, 2007, at the OLD Watha Daniel Library; Bring gloves, friends, and some water for yourself. For more details, check out a .pdf of the flyer here.
2. Artist Reception Saturday Night at the Long View Gallery for Charlie Gaynor - The Long View Gallery opens its latest show, Charlie Gaynor's Saturated View, this Saturday night from 6 to 8 pm.
