The It’s My Park Day Kid Crew met at Patterson on Saturday, March 5, and the morning exceeded all expectations! There were at least 18 families, a Boy Scout troop, a Maplewood teacher with 8 students, and a group of Cherrywood students from Lamar. Experienced Kid Crew leader Sharon Yarborough was a pro at organizing everyone, and we all took a turn at picking up trash and mulching. The littlest ones worked on washing the playground. Thank you to all the wonderful neighbors who came out to care for our neighborhood park and show our youngest neighbors how to build community!
