Hawthorne/Jordan "Clean Sweep" Was A Whole Lot Of Garbage!
The Hawthorne and Jordan Neighborhoods had very successful "Clean Sweep" clean up programs this weekend. The events were, in the strictest sense, different and separate. However, in spirit...
This was a cooperative effort between the neighborhoods. Hawthorne loaned money to the Jordan neighborhood (which is still trying to regain equilibrium in the wake of disastrous leadership failings) so Jordan could have a clean sweep event. One man bridged the gulf between the two events, and that was Jeff Skrenes, pictured above. (He's estimating whether that tire is within the "legal limit" or if we'll have to throw it back)
Not content with helping all morning as part of the elite "Let's Roll" tire recovery unit, Jeff went to the Jordan Neighborhood and helped out there, too.
In fact, Jeff took many of pictures of the Jordan cleanup, which will be shared here as I managed to get them up. I took a lot of pictures, too, but these were with Jeff's camera. Sometimes it's hard to even remember whose photo credit is whose. Our work is all mingled together noodles on a plate, for the greater good of the neighborhood.
Hopefully, our pictures will manage to capture most or many of the individuals who participated in the Clean Sweep activities.
