The Berlin Main Street Program is asking volunteers to welcome spring by joining your friends and neighbors on Friday, May 19, for the Berlin Downtown Day of Caring. A few hours of time and some sweat equity is all it takes to make downtown Berlin look it's best for the upcoming summer season.
The program is looking for volunteers to help rake, prune, sweep, mulch, weed and plant their way through multiple sites in the downtown area.
In appreciation for the work, a barbecue is planned for lunchtime at Bickford Place for all volunteers.
As always, community volunteers are the key to the success of the project.
All participants should bring gardening supplies, if available, including gloves, brooms, rakes, wheelbarrows and other gardening hand tools they may have from home. Other supplies are available on site at Bickford Place Park.
