Help cleanup Herron-Morton!

Fall is here! That means it’s time for clean-up in Herron-Morton Place. This year instead of having just one day we have designated the whole month of October as time for clean-up. We encourage residents to pick up litter, leaves, and debris on their block (or other blocks in need) when it is convenient for them. Please also give some TLC to your alleys… they need it. Bags and gloves will be available for those who want them – please contact me at aliceketchem@gmail.com. Refuse should be placed in personal garbage cans as we are not having a dumpster or packer truck.

We are also creating a “Storm Drain Dream Team”. Clogged drains worsen flooding after heavy rain (or snow) fall so it is very important to keep them clear. Residents of HMP are urged to adopt a drain and become part of this team. Please contact Matt Robinson at mattharn@umich.edu. Before and after pictures are welcome and can be submitted to Matt and Alice.

Block organized parties are a great way to celebrate your efforts and get to know your neighbors. We would love to see your photos! Share online to our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/herronmortonplace/).

All are welcome to come by the 19th and New Jersey block party on November 3 at 3pm as a thank you for your efforts. We will supply the brats..side dishes and desserts are much appreciated. We will post RSVP details on Facebook and Nextdoor towards the end of October…. so stay tuned!
