On Saturday, April 22nd from 10am-1pm the Wallingford community will have the opportunity to help clean up the neighborhood at two locations. This activity is part of the City of Seattle Adopt A Street program. The Wallingford effort was initiated by Colleen Kurke and her organization Street Keepers inspired by cleanup efforts she has led in the past when involved with the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce.
Colleen will be joined by assistants, Rhonda Bush from Historic Wallingford, and Ted Hunter from the Wallingford Community Council and appreciate sponsorship from these organizations for this event. Thanks to community businesses Dicks, Young Tea and Fuel Coffee for making donations to the event.
