Neighborhood service projects on MLK Day

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. ― Martin Luther King Jr.

What a neighborhood: not one, not two, but THREE clean-ups were organized as service projects to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. ICS volunteers tidied up the area behind and around the school, neighbors picked up litter off roadsides, and the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve mulched, tidied up and planted seedings.

Thank you to all the volunteers!
