Today was Newton SERVES day, one of the best traditions in the city.  It’s an annual day of volunteer service for the citizens to pitch in on any of dozens of citizen organized projects all over the city.  The city pitches in with various supports services, hauling trash, providing supplies, etc but the citizens do the heavy lifting.

In my neighborhood a crew hauled bags and bags of trash out of the Upper Falls Greenway right of way.  Just down the river, a team of mostly Boy Scouts repaired two of the footbridges along the Quinnobequin road riverside paths.

Tell us your NewtonSERVES stories.  Did you see any projects in your neighborhood?  Were you volunteering on a project yourself?

The work is all over, so now its time for the best part – a free ice cream Sunday down at City Hall courtesy of Cabots Ice Cream.
