Hang out to help out – Feb. 5th!

Hang Out to Help Out

Ivy Ridge Greeners –

Need to see you all for a drink in the New Year! Join us for some blue grass music at Bourbon Blue on Main Street, February 5th, with your $20 going straight to support the tool habit of dozens of local volunteers in 2011. Get your tickets here.

We know you can’t make it out for every Saturday bush-whacking, and we suspect you’d like to see us in something other than dirty jeans and work gloves. Here’s your chance! The first cocktail is on us.

Saturday, February 5, 6:30 to 9:30 pm
Bourbon Blue
2 Rector Street in Manayunk
Free appetizers
Drink specials – first drink is on the house!
Door Prizes
Silent Art Auction

If you can’t make it but want to say thanks to the dozens of volunteers who help make this neighborhood very cool, send them a few bucks by donating anyway. It’s tax deductible and much appreciated.

See you out at Bourbon Blue!

— Annie, Garrett, Marlene, Blaise, Chris, and the rest.

…and thanks to the folks at Destination Schuylkill River for noticing.

Great work on the pocket park at Canton and Leverington Streets — ready for some planting next year! — and thanks to Annie and Marlene for the “trash tour” or the actually very lovely Germany Hill. If you haven’t seen it, you owe yourself a walk.

Winter is a great time to clear vines, so we’ll be back out for MLK Day. Keep your eyes on the events calendar, and we’ll see you out there!
