Karate Students Plan "Spring Cleaning" Project in Allston Neighborhood


BOSTON (Allston), Mass., March 2, 2010 -- As part of it's "Environmental Self-Defense" initiative, members of Boston's Emerald Necklace Martial Arts will be cleaning up the Everett Street embankment in Allston starting at noon on Saturday, March 20.

Please click here for a special video message from Sensei Gould.

The focus of the clean-up project will be the south side of Everett Street, from the base of the Everett Street bridge to the corner of Everett and Braintree Streets. Specifically, members of our dojo will be picking up all trash and debris from the embankment, the sidewalk, and the street. We will also do some weeding around the trees and flowers that our karate students planted last summer and fall, and we'll be seeding the area with wildflowers so that the area is in bloom all summer long.

We would like to invite the entire community to participate in improving this small section of the city. For more information, please contact Sensei Jason Gould by phone at 617-230-1973. We hope to see you at this event. Please help us to spread the word, and bring your friends to 95 Everett Street at noon on Saturday, March 20!
