The Chantilly Neighborhood Association has officially “adopted” Shenandoah Avenue and Bascom Street through the “Keep Charlotte Beautiful Adopt-a-City Street Program” with the gracious help of Libby and Joe Meiners!
Our first clean up day in June was a success – please keep the ball rolling. We will meet Saturday, September 26 on the corner of Shenandoah and Bascom Streets at 9:00 am. Bags and ‘grabbers’ are provided.
This is an opportunity for service hours for scout troops or students. Youths must have adults accompany them. Libby will have waivers for you to sign. The more helpers we have, the less time it will take to pick up these two streets. It’s a great chance for the whole family to show a bit of community pride.
Later that morning, another group has agreed to rendezvous with us on Pecan and Shenandoah. If you are feeling like extra credit, any volunteers are free to help us clean a bit more. Our stretch of Pecan may become another street, along with the rest of our neighborhood streets, the Association may adopt in the future.
See you Saturday, September 26 at 9:00 am!
We will be coordinating a minimum of 4 clean-ups per year along our route and will report our progress back to the city each time. The city will provide us with trash bags, pickers and vests to make our lives a little easier.
