Last month, my family joined with neighbors on the Golden Mile and picked up trash.
It wasn’t glamorous work; it was the humble work that people perform when they truly value their community.
The emerging local organizations Nuevas Ideas Frederick MD and the RISE Coalition brought together dozens of residents to work block by block, cleaning up “La Cuarenta” — the wonderfully diverse neighborhoods along U.S. 40. Watching the crowd work together and chat in multiple languages, I felt very proud to represent our city.
I’ll be there for the next cleanup this Sunday, Nov. 10, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside Frederick Towne Mall. ¡Mejor juntos!
