Now that the park areas are clean and weeded,  it is time for mulch.  Come to the Conoy Street Kiddie Park at 8 AM  on Saturday May 11th;  join with others to place mulch on all the areas prepped so well last week.  It is a dirty job, but the finished product is very satisfying.  Bring your tools, rakes, shovels, pitch forks, buckets, wagons, and wheelbarrows.  Please label you equipment with name and address (so we can return any lost tools).  This is indeed a job where many hands make light work.
