Lehigh Valley Ambassador Walking Tour of Easton - this Saturday


I spent last Saturday morning planting flowers and spreading mulch in Easton's Centre Square. It didn't look bad before - Easton's Ambassadors (read: extremely friendly men and women who answer questions, clean up trash and generally keep an eye on things downtown) do a good job maintaining the area. But they needed a few extra hands getting the downtown area ready for the Easton Farmer's Market and other springtime celebrations in Easton. Volunteering in this way is a great match for me - it's casual, cost-free, and gives me the opportunity to meet other service-inclined people, and catch up with my family and friends (not to mention, get a workout and a little sun!).
If you have some time and the inclination to volunteer this week, the Easton Main Street program needs help planting annuals in planters around the neighborhood. Just call (610) 330-9940 or e-mail to sign up. (Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13, 9 a.m. to noon). Plan to bring your own gardening tools and gloves.

This Saturday kicks off the Easton Farmer's Market season (Saturdays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. through November). Not sure what that means? I have organized a walking "tour" of downtown Easton on Saturday for people just like you - just sign up through Northampton Community College. If this sounds like fun to you, please register and join our group!
