Meeting time is 9:00am at Toscanini’s Ice Cream in Central Square – Sunday June 23rd, rain date June 30th.
On Sunday morning, June 23rd, Cambridge residents came out to pitch in cleaning up its greatest Square – Central Square. Volunteers met at Toscanni’s to pick up the necessary gloves and tools before heading out to clean up sidewalks, tree wells, and all the other nooks and crannies along Mass. Ave. and side streets from Lafayette Square to Carl Barron Plaza. All this for the promise of a scoop of ice cream and a cup of coffee.
The main organizers were Patrick Barrett (who also happens to own the building in which Toscanini’s Ice Cream serves its delicious ice cream) and Dan Goldstein (formerly of the Clear Conscience Cafe). Patrick’s wife Norma Jean (9 months pregnant with their first child) also pitched in with the organization and work crews.
There was no shortage of City Council candidates at the event – some of whom actually pitched in and worked. This, by the way, is the first step in a candidate proving his or her committment to Central Square. Candidates included Minka vanBeuzekom, Sam Seidel, Luis Vasquez, Janneke House, and Nadeem Mazen. Councillor Tim Toomey and School Committeman Fred Fantini also made an appearance. Anyone who took pictures is encouraged to submit them to complete the day’s celebration.
Above all, folks, let’s continue to take care of our Central Square and to allow it to achieve its full potential.
