W.E. C.A.R.E at Watergate Estates

Great American Cleanup @Watergate Estates 2010

Hi Friends and Neighbors,

Wow...this years Community Cleanup was a huge success! 

Thanks to all who participated!  Our volunteers showed up early and got straight to work, setting up tents, tables and chairs.   After sign in we put on our gloves and safety vests, grabbed a bottle of water and split into three large groups.  One group went directly to the medians (the front entrance of Watergate Estates) and began cleaning and beautifying the area.  A broken concrete walkway was transformed into a lovely path surrounded by flowers and plants.  Existing plants were trimmed and new mulch was spread.  Meanwhile, the second group were walkers, they walked along Sandalfoot Blvd. from the Substation to the medians, picking up garbage and debris along the way.  The third group remained behind at the substation, we transplanted a Palm tree to a better location, added numerous plants and flowers, created a rock border along the West wall and added plants and a rock garden on the East side of the building.  We also potted palms along with tropical plants to place in front of the substation and one in front of Calvary.  By then the second group returned to the Substation and our third group was finishing up, so we once again split up.  We were able to clean up a vacant lot and a common area cul-de-sac on Sandalfoot Blvd.

As Always, we finished up with a luncheon for the volunteers.  This year we had a Pizza party, with chips, drinks & fruit salad.  While everyone was cooling down and enjoying lunch we had free raffles and everyone was able to receive a Great American Cleanup T-Shirt or Hat.  It was great to see old friends and get to know new ones, everyone had a great time, the weather held out and the finished product is lovely.  Thanks once again for all the hard work and we hope to see everyone next year.

We would also like to acknowledge and thank John Travis, who has been back to the substation to work more on the palms and trees and to pressure clean the building, all in preparation for painting.  Also to Jay and Jessy Unsrud for returning to lay more rock after the event.
