We can either live with it, or do something about it
The Katrina Krewe has cut back to once-a-month clean-ups in order to devote more time to educational projects to teach our citizens not to litter. Becky Zaheri and her Krewe are an excellent source of information and they have been doing a fantastic job. Here is part of my latest communique from Becky:
NEXT WEEK….Saturday, June 24th… Meet at the corner of N. Broad and Ursuline. Katrina Krewe will set up supplies in front of the abandoned H&R Block…8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m…supplies, snacks and bags provided as usual…water provided by Peoples Health Network.
Other Katrina Krewe Summer clean ups…Saturdays, July 29th and August 26th…both 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m…site will be announced a week prior to clean up in order to choose the location where we can be most productive.
The Katrina Krewe has cut back to once a month clean ups to focus on education and public awareness as it pertains to long term litter control. We will remain your networking resource, posting clean up events thru out the city and we will continue rallying all citizens to “keep it klean” (see citywide clean ups below).
The Katrina Krewe has joined with New Orleans Fine Hotels to provide donated and discounted hotel rooms on a 1st come, 1st served basis, to our volunteers surrounding our monthly summer clean ups. Katrina Krewe will provide a voucher upon completion of our clean up, which should be presented to the hotel upon check out…all questions directed to New Orleans Fine Hotels.
Please join these Citywide Neighborhood Clean Up Efforts Below… (wear gloves, bring bags, and a rake/shovel)
