NewtonServes Day is Sunday, May 1st

Newton Parks, Recreation & Culture Department is excited to share that NewtonSERVES 2022 will be on  May 1st.   This year we are looking to focus volunteer efforts on cleaning and improving our parks, school grounds, open space areas, and conservation lands.  These areas have been so important these past few years and really could use some community TLC! Mr. Gluck is leading our annual Underwood Garden and Playground Cleanup.All ages are welcome and you can sign up here: https://newtonma.myrec.com/info/activities/program_details.aspx?ProgramID=30256 – scroll down to Underwood School Garden! Volunteers should come to Underwood anytime from 9am – 3pm and bring their own gloves and masks – a rake or shovel from home would be helpful, too!
