Have to say that our Saturday clean up had a lame turnout. It was about 10 of the usual suspects who come out every time one of these events happen. What to do about the problem of free riders? Most people want their streets free of litter, but can’t be bothered to spend an hour of their day every couple of months to get out and pitch in? It’s a little demoralizing for those that do pitch because they are also people with busy lives. Also, Pete spent a lot of time planning the event. Makes the community spirit not so fun. So if you guys who didn’t attend have any suggestions on how to make these events more participatory, give a comment here or to me directly and let’s see how we can get more folks involved. Thanks!
