Leaf Pickup Day - Saturday, December 1

Please mark your calendar and plan to volunteer some time on Saturday, December 1st for the annual MPTLL Leaf Pickup Day at Randolph Park. The festivities will begin at 9am and continue into the afternoon until the leaves are gone.

Our volunteer grounds crew does an amazing job for the kids of Myers Park Trinity, spending countless hours at our park on a year-round basis. Baseball doesn't stop for them, and they are the main reason we have the best park around. But for a project this large, they need our help. Collecting the leaves now will allow them to work on other needed projects over the winter. So please support them with at least a couple of hours of your time, hopefully more, on the 1st.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves, rakes and gas-powered leaf blowers if possible. Snow shovels and tarps also come in handy for scooping large amounts of leaves off the ground. And a pickup truck or two would be useful for transporting leaves to where they need to be gathered. Remember to mark all tools that you bring with a name so nothing gets lost.

Please join us on December 1st. I hope to see the MPTLL community in full force.
