Beautification Day – Saturday, February 17, 2018
February 17 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Beautification Day is set for Saturday, February 17, 2018, 8 AM to 9:30 AM. Individuals and families will be meeting at 8 AM at the Hallet Oak Gallery to divide into teams. One team will start at 8:30 AM on the north side of Brookshire Brothers (Hallettsville, TX). The teams are picking up trash on “private easement with permission” for one hour. The objective is to remove trash that is embedded in dirt and fence.
“The public is welcomed to participate and receive community service certificates. Come dressed to work, bring gloves and tools” says Mieko Mahi, a community development volunteer for Friends of Hallettsville Downtown Revitalization. “Friends” is which is part of the Hallet Oak Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charitable organization.
To get involved with working together for the community, join in on Beautification Day. Volunteers that attend this event will receive a fountain drink coupon donated by Morton’s Drive-In and Diane’s Diner. The coupons are only handed out by the leaders of “Friends of Hallettsville” group. Requirements are to wear gloves, eye-protection, such as sunglasses or safety glasses, hat, and long pants, work-shoes or boots that can get dirty. Teens are welcome, small children may “watch” and “help” if guided by a parent. If you can’t attend, please sign up for our “Friends of Hallettsville” group for our next Beautification Day at email@example.com or call 361-217-7030. “These “Beautification Days” are going to have multiple benefits – to meet new people and to see the difference before and after! By working together as teams – we can create synergy for enjoying being outside and working together for our community”, says Mahi.
