Too many times we focus on the negative happenings in what is Lorain’s oldest green space, the public green from whence a city was born now known as Veteran’s Park.

However fellow blogger Lisa Miller ( Buster’s Momma) called me on Saturday morning to say

Did I know what was going on at Veteran’s Park

Oh No!

thought I

not more vandalism and less than desirable activity- No I said cautiously what now?

Lisa replied

There are all these little girls and mums and dads cleaning up!

I bet it is the Girl Scouts- Lisa can you ask their troop leader if we can take photos – and can you take some please

and Lisa did.

The Girl Scouts are more than about cookies that is for sure- they came prepared
Charleston Village thanks you and the neighborhood and all that love that little park!

Well done ladies-( and mums, dads and little brothers too!) You did us proud!!!!

I am told they cleaned up 32 bags of garbage etc.

Lisa told me they were so proud of their work and smiles were evident everywhere!

    Yes-thank you VERY MUCH for volunteering and taking on such a project. The park is a very important historic place in the city and is nice to see so many younger people getting involved to keep it looking nice,plus helping the environment. Thanks again. It looks great!! Renee Dore

    I was pleasantly surprised to catch this random act of kindness and community pride in action. The girls, their parental units and little brothers did a great job cleaning up the whole park!

    Thanks for the great post, Loraine 🙂
