BE A PART OF MORNINGSIDE – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We want to thank the volunteers who helped us with weeding and littering this past weekend. What was most interesting is that the majority were not even from Morningside. Isn’t it nice that people came to our neighborhood to help make it beautiful! A sincere thank you to those volunteers.

NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP – We need help mulching the business district tree pits. This is a job that won’t take long if we get 20 people and a few wheel barrels. Anyone can help spread mulch.
