Quick reminder: the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring Operation Beautify Wallingford today, Saturday. Show at the Wallingford Center starting at 10 am to pick up cleaning supplies and get an assignment, spend some time beautifying the neighborhood, then return for a speech by Councilmember Mike O’Brien and neighborhood activist Cathy Tuttle, starting around 1:00 pm. The band, we understand, has been canceled, but the School of Oom Yung Doe will be high-kicking in style and there will be food and drink offered up by local businesses.
In a coordinated effort, the semi-fictitious East Wallingford Hot Tub Association will be out in force in the southern Latona area, picking up trash, covering up graffiti and beautifying our neck of the woods. Grab a bag and join us if you’re out and about.
