Lafitte Corridor cleanup Sat. Nov 21

The first Lafitte Corridor cleanup is scheduled for Sat. Nov 21 from 9 to 1. Major Jerrod Spinney of the Criminal Sheriff's office has agreed to trim the area behind the Sojourner Truth Community Center, extending to the police filling station, in advance. They will also take care of the brush removal. We will be meeting at Sojourner Truth Community Center, 2200 Lafitte St, @ 9AM. All needed materials will be provided.

The Sierra Club and the Friends of the Lafitte Corridor are looking for volunteers to assist in activities such as cleaning off sidewalks, trash removal, etc. For more information e-mail Ethan Ellestad at or call 608-417-9052.
