PAX, it is that time again for the 2nd Adopt A Street community project which will be held on Saturday, April 2nd. The first event in November had over 30 people participate including PAX, Ms, and 2.0s. We collected over 50 bags of trash, not including some of the bulky items like TVs, large bins, mattresses, etc. The F3 mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership. We leave no man behind and also leave no man where we found him. The same principle applies to our AO, meaning we should always leave our AO in better shape than we found it. A lot of credit goes to our PAX for routinely picking up trash during or after our beatdowns at the schools, the Sports Club, and at MCCP. Having said that, the streets and areas around Highland Creek Elementary(HCE) and Ridge Road Middle(RRM) have already accumulated a lot of litter since November.
Once again, we will pick up litter on Shelley Avenue, Dogwood Street, and Street Avenue plus the section of Highland Creek Parkway between Shelley Avenue and Dogwood Street. In exchange for our services, the city of Charlotte will provide 2 street signs with Adopt A Street – F3 Highlands listed on the sign. The signs have been delayed due to supply chain issues, but should be here in the next month or 2. We will display the 1st sign on the corner of Highland Creek Parkway and Shelley Avenue and the 2nd sign on the corner of Dogwood Street and Street Avenue. Once again, the city will provide safety vests, trash bags, litter “grabber”, and will pick up the trash following the clean-up. Here’s additional details on our community project.
Community Project name: Adopt A City Street – F3 Highlands
Date: Saturday, April 2nd
Time: 8:30am – 10:30am
Location: Highland Creek Elementary – Back parking lot
What to bring? Closed-toe shoes, bug spray, sunscreen
Who can attend? Everyone is welcome including our Ms, 2.0s, friends, etc. For safety precaution, children 12 and under will be working around the schools to limit exposure to the roads. Let’s make it a family event once again. A special invitation will also be extended to FiA to join the effort.
Food & Beverages: Unlike our first event, we will only provide coffee, water, and donuts for this event. YHC will post Google sign up sheet in order to have an idea on projected attendance for planning purposes (trash bag, pick-up sticks, vests, gloves, drinks, and donuts).
Last Call beatdown on April 2nd will move from MCCP to Highland Creek Middle from 7:00 am to 8:00 am.
YHC understands everyone is busy with kids’ activities and etc. But hopefully, you can manage your calendar accordingly to make this a priority. Doing so can also be a good lesson for our children teaching them that taking care of our community can be as important, if not more important than soccer, baseball of other events.
Looking forward to our project!
