MLK Day of Service:
Building Pastorius Gardens
January 18th, 2016

What an incredible turn out in honor of Doctor Martin Luther King! At least 50 volunteers showed up on this afternoon and in two hours were all finished! It was a very cold day, but all your generosity, passion, hard work and love, made it feel like a spring afternoon.
Thank You Germantown Mennonite Historic Trust for hosting us in your historic Meetinghouse! You fed us, and gave us shelter from the cold, and you brought us together! Men Who Care of Germantown Inc. thank you for bringing out the community in force!! What an incredible turn out. Your leadership today was inspiring!

Vacant Lot Clean Up: December 12th, 2015

Neighbors coming together on Pastorius Street! We picked up trash. We painted old tires and turned them into planters; cleared the overgrown sidewalk; and we finally removed the felled telephone pole that has been blocking our sidewalk for the past two years.  We hope to spread wood chips on this lot and keep the weeds down come springtime.
