A brief history of Bruce Monroe Community Day
Last year, the DC Prevention Center in collaboration of the Georgia Ave Business Alliance, Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force, Ecolocity, and other constituents in the community organized the Bruce Monroe Community Day to highlight issues that were occurring at the park. From this community day, they learned of many simple amenities the park was missing. For the past year, the dedicated group has been working with the DC government to fix many of these issues. To celebrate the improvements that have been made at the park ,we will celebrate with another Bruce Monroe Community Day.In addition to Freecycle, the community day will be packed with events including face painting, a coloring station and food from local businesses.
A brief history of Freecycle Fete
In case you missed our last Freecycle event, Freecycle Fete is an opportunity for neighbors to give away items they don’t need, as opposed to throwing them away. Simply come, set up “shop” at our of our tables, and discover treasures. While we do encourage everyone to bring their unwanted items, all attendees are able to “shop” around. Please do not bring items that could not be comfortably transported by one, regular sized individual. These items include couches, mattresses, bed frames, large dressers, large tables or anything that would be generally classified as junk.
