Spring Time

As all of us begin our annual pining for spring and warm weather and long lunches outside, I am reminded of one of my favorite new spring time events – Bring a Broom Saturday.  Last year, we (the Partnership and NAC 11) organized our first ever Downtown Frederick cleanup.  We all had a fantastic time picking up trash.  Yes, as crazy as that sounds, picking up garbage can be great fun.  At the post event pizza party (go Brewer’s Alley for the generous donation last year and again this year), the 100+ volunteers all were sharing the stories of the work they had completed and their pride in their accomplishments.  While we organizers were feeling a bit winded by a busy morning, the buzz in the room had us rejuvenated and ready for more.  And boy did Downtown Frederick look good!  It was the perfect kick off to a great spring in Downtown Frederick.  Sound like fun?  Join us this year on April 27 and do good.
