Silver Spring Neighbors Answer Call to Service

Over 40 neighbors came together today to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. and answer President-elect Obamaʼs call to service by volunteering.

All ages met at 9a in Sligo Creek Park and collected 30 plus bags of trash and other assorted items from steep slopes and cold, wet creek beds.

Afterwards, fellow neighbor Beth Lieberman hosted us all for coffee, milk and cookies.

Many thanks to everyone who braved the cold, damp environment in the volunteer spirit.

I look forward to working with you all again soon,
