Every Wednesday

Every Wednesday.

Rain or shine.

Cold or hot.

The F to the B to the golf cart to

a crew of “older adults“

Gathered with Jerry,

our intrepid leader,

to work…

Pulling weeds,

Raking leaves,

Chipping away at icy walkways,

Laying wood chips on weathered paths,




Our beloved Central Park.

This gift

of time

of effort

of genuine care

from the kindest,

most generous and

Community minded people

I know.

The epitome of giving a gift,

without counting the cost.

The only reward,

A job well done.

Oh yes, and a coffee break at 10.

With an occasional scone

lovingly made by Stuart.
