To all Northridge Stakeholders:
Spic & Span was the theme that swept Plummer last Saturday!
Thanks to the volunteers of Northridge the west portion of Plummer Street just east of Corbin has been deemed spotless – immaculately clean. The broken down fencing, overhanging Bougainvillea and trees along with the piles of debris were swept clean Saturday. An area once described as a “rats nest” is cleaning up nicely due to the hard work and dedication of the volunteers stepping outside the box to help keep Northridge shining.
I’d like to thank the Energizer Bunny Sumeko Mukasa, Northridge Rockabilly Teri Grossman, Coach Dick Rippey, Yellow Croc Trotting Freddie Rymond, Clipper Shark Joe Oswald, the Wilson Clan lead by For Ever Young Martha Wilson and her two rock star performing sons Glen and Robert, Get it Done Now Chris Williams, Mr & Mrs. Paul Bunion Ron & Marlene Wengler for making Saturday’s event a success. Although this week we put a time limit on the mighty and proud Paul Bunion we were still able to get a large portion of the area trimmed up and looking spotless before noon.
With the help of these volunteers and that of our newcomers who are stepping up and joining Operation Clean Sweep we are making our best attempt to meet the challenge to stem the tide and push back the blighted streets of this great city. These volunteers are demonstrating that giving back to your community can be fun; promotes pride of ownership while developing and building new and existing friendships. These efforts exhibit a community coming together to achieve a shared goal of having a cleaner, greener and safer community where we can live, work, learn and play.
A special Thank you to Thursday’s Dream Team for their efforts along Wilbur Street just south of Devonshire Street. Their hard work and attention to detail has really improved the appearance and demonstrates what accomplishments are being made to make Northridge residents proud of their community.
I want to Thank all the stakeholders that are keeping their parkways, sidewalks, gutters clean. Your efforts and commitment to your community is greatly appreciated.
