Adair Park -  Jay Melton, President of 'Adair Park Today', sent out a letter to the community about a neighborhood cleanup on Saturday, March 24 from 9am to 12pm.

Just wanted to inform you that Adair Park Today is organizing a neighborhood cleanup on Saturday, March 24 from 9am to 12pm. 

We are going to meet at Adair Park II in the parking lot at Gillette and Tift Avenues at 8:30am for breakfast. We will split up into groups with captains and head to the assigned areas. We will have two vehicles with trailers designated for trash and tire pickup to bring everything back to the parking lot.

We plan on cleaning the entire historic district from Shelton to Lexington, Allene and Murphy to Metropolitan.

The City of Atlanta is providing a dumpster for our use. We hope to have 20-25 neighbors along with some volunteers, all we are asking people to bring are gloves and sunscreen.
