Alliance Community Cleanup day - Sept 23 2017
September 20, 2017
Many hands make light work, the saying goes, and we saw that concept in action last weekend when dozens of Southwest Florida citizens descended on the Alliance for the Arts with chainsaws in tow, plus plenty of community spirit. The News-Press latched onto that spirit with this uplifting article, some much-needed good news after the fright and tribulations associated with Hurricane Irma.
We’ve witnessed many acts of kindness after the storm. Sometimes events that are bigger than us serve as a kind of crucible, forcing the true nature of our community to bubble up to the surface.
More hands are needed at the Alliance, so another clean up day is scheduled for this Saturday. Go get your booster shot of community spirit. It will be good for you.
