Saturday: CRM Community Residences Cleanup

On Saturday (June 16th) Community Role Models is helping to clean up and spruce up one of the houses run by Community Residences. This non-profit provides services to people with a wide range of disabilities, working to promote independent community living.

Each spring these houses need the usual annual maintenance, and CRM is stepping up and helping out. Volunteers should meet at the house at 5947 N. 8th Road between 9 and 10 am. CRM and Community Residences will provide all the materials you need to help get this house and yard looking good, so just bring yourself, your friends, and a little elbow grease!

The attached photo is from the Community Residences cleanup last year and was one of the first times Eric & I hung out. He's on the right in the red hat (I'm behind the camera). (UPDATE: Read Eric's review of the 2006 event here.)

After the work is done, CRM has arranged to have lunch catered by Lebanese Taverna. If you're interested, please sign up now. CRM still needs more volunteers, so please consider signing up on your own or with a group of friends!
