What better way is there to kick off your Halloween than to help out our community during our Football bye week?! Many other Michigan State University Alumni Clubs from around the country are also having service events on the same day in a coordinated effort to give back. Thank you in advance for joining us on Halloween morning and generously donating a few hours of your time.
Meeting spot: Buena Vista Park Children’s Playground
(at the intersection of Waller and Buena Vista Avenue West)
What we will be doing: Park Beautification weeding, mulching, light pruning, path maintenance etc.
Make sure to wear closed toed shoes and bring some extra layers because you never know if Karl the Fog will decide to role in. Also, since it is Halloween we encourage you to wear something festive – maybe even a costume!
The Michigan State Spartans San Francisco Bay Area will be joining the SF Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation for a beach cleanup event at Ocean Beach on Sunday, October 19 from 10am until 12pm. The Surfrider Foundarion is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches, and we are happy to partner with them to help give back a cleaner Ocean Beach to the SF community!
If you have your own work gloves and a bucket to haul away what you collect, please bring them with you. They will have some gloves and buckets but it would help if we bring them in case they do not have enough for everybody.
We are using Eventbrite so that we get an accurate volunteer list for planning purposes, so please grab a ticket for each person in your group if you will be joining us for the event. There is no charge to register.
We will meet at Stairwell 17. There is a large parking lot at Ocean Beach so parking should not be a problem. If you would like to take the bus, use the 5-Fulton bus and exit the bus at Fulton & La Playa. Then walk 1 block West and across the Great Highway to Ocean Beach.
Any questions about the event, send an e-mail to Victoria Vandegrift, Community Service Events Director.
Come out and represent the Bay Area Spartan Alumni by helping benefit the entire community with the time and effort we donate to the restoration and beautification of South Park. We will be picking up trash, weeding, and planting to beautify the neighborhood park. Afterwards, we will reward ourselves with food and drinks nearby. Location TBD. All ages are welcome.
Date: Saturday, September 28, 2013 (don’t worry – it’s a Spartan Football bye week!)
