JAMS Neighborhood Cleanup
April 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Joined Artists, Musicians & Singers, Inc. (JAMS) is organizing a cleanup of the 100 to 400 blocks of South Avenue April 17. This area was specifically chosen because many of JAMS’ members have participated in Southwest Showcase Sundays, an annual summertime concert series held at the Spirit of Jubilee Park located amid the blocks. Organizer of the event Hollis Mathis, JAMS vice president who is also a singer and lives nearby, is a known advocate for keeping the neighborhood clean and can often be seen doing it on his own.
JAMS will meet at The Spirit of Jubilee Park starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 17. Organizers encourage other community members to participate. Anyone who is interested needs only to show up at that time. The trash bags, gloves and pickers will be handed out along with bottled water and other tokens of appreciation.
In addition to being an effort to clean and beautify the neighborhood, JAMS also intends to use the event as a platform to help raise awareness about its intent to build a permanent performance stage at the park.
