People Power (II)

IMG_6846It’s always encouraging to see private citizens come together, on their own, to invest their own time, energy, and sweat equity in making their communities just a little bit better.  On our walk today, Kish and I saw another example of this heartening phenomenon — in this case, a volunteer group that works on recrafting the signature brick sidewalks of German Village.  The sign at the top right of the above photograph reads:

“The German Village Society is committed to working with homeowners to improve the neighborhood sidewalks.  You are standing on a sidewalk repaired by a dozen volunteers!”

The sidewalk looks great, and I give a hand and a nod to the German Village Society.  I’d love to see volunteer groups working on weeding some of the sidewalks and devil strips, too — and I would be happy to lend a hand.
