Young alums: Charles River Cleanup

Date: April 25, 2009
Time: 8 a.m.
Location: Charles River

Like eating breakfast? Like helping your community? You can do both on Saturday, April 25th at the 10th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup!

Throw on your favorite Bryn Mawr t-shirt, sweatpants, tote bag and/or hat and join fellow Mawrtyrs in making Boston a little more pleasant. Grab a water bottle and a friend and join us at the Hatchshell at 8:30.

Last year, volunteers helped remove over 20 TONS of trash from the riverbanks. This cleanup really makes a difference and so can you! If you’re lucky, you might even get to pick up trash with some famous volunteers, like Senator John Kerry, who came to the 2007 Cleanup.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” — Margaret Mead
