This is easily one of the best examples of putting words in to action. You don't have to invent a cure for global warming, just clean up your backyard a bit.
What a great way to set an example.

This is great to hear; that someone did organize an event in keeping with the president-elect's National Day of Service. I wish the particulars had been posted earlier(?) on the website I had cited, since I had been checking daily from Friday until this morning (Monday) and never saw this listed, nor had I seen ANY advance notice in the Pleasanton Weekly so that more citizens could have joined this effort. I do hope that the spirit of community volunteerism continues, and that the Pleasanton Weekly (Jeb Bing, please! as well as other reporters) do make the effort to publicize these events BEFORE THE FACT, as some had requested, so that we can all join in and help out.

FYI: It is OK to do volunteer work on any day in the future too. You can do it alone or in a group, with or without recognition. Make a plan to continue these good efforts...
