March E-update

Come Celebrate Earth Day/Comcast Cares Day with Groundwork Lawrence
Enjoy some sunshine, the company of your neighbors and digging in the dirt for a good cause at our annual Earth Day/Comcast Cares event!  On April 26th volunteers will gather at Campagnone/North Common to show their love for the City of Lawrence by assisting in beautification projects at many open spaces and parks in the community.  Trees will be planted, a beautiful mural will be painted at Manchester Street Park and three schoolyard gardens will be built at three local schools!  We would love to have you or a group of your friends, family or co-workers join.

When: April 26th 8am-1pm
Where: Meet at the Campagnone/North Common
More information

If you are interested in volunteering as an individual or as a group please contact Rosa Pina, 978-974-0770 x7001.  If you plan on attending it will be very helpful to complete the registration form prior to the event.

GWL is Seeking Your Input
The Campagnone/North Common has a new playground, new lights, over 75 new trees and will soon have its two main cross paths reconstructed, all thanks to financial support from the City of Lawrence and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Water Play Opportunities at the Common are still needed, based on strong resident feedback, and we may have the opportunity to add a Spray Park at the Common to address this need.

What do you think about having a water park at the Campagnone/North Common? You can help by answering two quick survey questions here (English/Spanish).

Two Easy Ways to Support GWL with Benefits to You!
