What Would You Like To Do Next In Rego Park?

Dear Rego Park Green Alliance Members,

We would like to determine the next community project for our membership. In order to do this we need your input. Past projects have included tree and daffodil planting, mural on 63rd Drive, hydroponics workshops, and book publication. Future projects should promote sustainability, education, beautification, and community involvement. Projects may be small or large. Please email me your thoughts and I will look to setup a meeting for us in the next couple of weeks at the library.

If you know of others who might be interested in being active in the community, please forward this email or send them to . We have made great strides working together in our community and I know that we can do even more.

We have also raised an additional 100 dollars in proceeds from the publishing of A New York City Public School Goes Green. The book can be purchased at Amazon

Thank You
Yvonne Shortt

Volunteer Casting Call

As it turns out, the Mayor's Office is casting a commercial on volunteering in one's community. Several Rego Park Green Alliance members trucked down to the casting agency to see if they might have a chance of being in the commercial. The best part, if they are chosen the casting agency might pay us a little to help with whatever project they shoot for the commercial. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

Cracked Pavement Fixed

Thanks in part to Tony's Pizza for helping get the sidewalk under the mural paved. Thank you for taking the plants and replanting them in lovely pots. Also, we love the new plants and the trellis. Together we are making a difference, person by person, company by company, day by day.

Mural Fixed

Last week someone put a little graffiti on the wall. Thank you Peter Beadle for cleaning and repainting the wall. It looks great. I think that, as a community, we are coming together in ways that some of us never thought possible.

Rego Park Green Alliance Honored By Citizens Committee

In early June Richard and Yvonne, co-founders of the Rego Park Green Alliance, were honored for their group's service to the community. The event was held at the Municipal Society in the Helmsley Hotel, where wine and cheese were served and the guests had a chance to schmooze and learn about other like -minded groups.
