Clean Salem Green Salem Event

Come join HDSNA as we work to beautify our neighborhood as part of the annual Clean Salem Green Salem event! We’ll be working to spruce up Swiniuch Park and, if there are sufficient volunteers, the garden at the Ferry as well. We’ll meet at Swiniuch Park at 9:00am on Saturday May 5th. Lawn/leaf bags will be provided and gloves and garden tools will be available, although if you’re able to bring some of your own that would be fantastic, especially if we want to try to clean up both sites. There will be a pizza party on the Common afterwards to thank volunteers. If you’re unable to join but are interested in donating plants/mulch instead, donations will be gratefully accepted! Please let me know if you’re interested in helping out by responding here or emailing me at Hope to see you there!

New Orleans was once boisterous; before class, racial and political lines were drawn, it was a parade of beautiful women and good-looking men, flowing wine, and pleasure for the taking.  But, it is 1801 and the map of New Orleans is about to be redrawn, challenging Jacques Cornet and all that he represents.
