Juniata Action Committee Invites Neighbors to Help with Saturday Morning Cleanup

Members of the Juniata Action Committee have scheduled a cleanup of I Street between Ramona Avenue and Cayuga Street for Saturday morning, May 8th, 10am to 12 noon. All are welcome to come out, meet the group, and help!

    It’s been some time since the Juniata Action Committee has been out in the neighborhood. The organization that brought back the annual Juniata Park Parade, introduced Juniata Fest (community business festival), and spearheaded the transformation of the Cayuga Triangle from a concrete pad into a rain garden that welcomes travelers into the neighborhood, were shut down when the Covid-19 pandemic arrived.

    The JAC held its final event just prior to the statewide shutdown. On February 29, 2020, the JAC presented “A Musical Journey from Africa to the Caribbean.” This special cultural event was conducted by the Berrios Lopez family – Raul, Waleska and their son Asaf, who introduced musical instruments and played rousing songs.

   The group is going back to its roots this Saturday, May 8th to conduct litter abatement at I Street and Ramona Avenue from 10 am to 12 noon. All neighbors are invited to come out and assist in the clean-up. The JAC would be happy to meet you!
