Upcoming Worcester Blogger Meetups

I’m working on details for a blogger coffee in late September, but in the meantime, if you’re a blogger or reader, feel free to come to one or both of the following events:

1. Worcester Film Works’ presentation of Spaceballs. There will be music starting at 6pm this Thursday, August 25. You will be able to find the bloggers (or, at least, me) near the oval WWII memorial in the middle of the Common.  (Also, if you’re interested in helping folks register to vote at this event, please let David <at> IECWorcester <dot> org know.)

2. WoMag on Tap at Funky Murphy’s, NEXT Thursday, September 1, beginning at 5:30pm. RSVP here.

Hope to see you at one or both events!

Mayor’s Walk at God’s Acre on Monday

The rumor mill told me that there will likely be a Mayor’s Walk at God’s Acre next Monday, August 29, at 6:00pm.  I’ll post more details on the time and location as I hear them.

As per usual, here’s been some dumping (a couch, about 10 bags’ worth of trash, a Little Tikes tugboat sandbox that I’ll likely drag to my front yard and put a “Free” sign on, etc.).

The question — which I suspect is the question all folks in this position have — is whether or not to leave the trash as is.  Seeing a quite pretty wooded area with large items dumped intermittently throughout certainly makes a statement.

On the other hand, I was already planning on spending some this week’s free time collecting the trash for DPW to pick up.  If I hadn’t heard about the Mayor’s Walk, I’d have been spending a few hours with my wheelbarrow doing what I usually do.

The compromise I’ll likely make with myself is to do some tidying up, but to take plenty of “before” pictures so that those who only see the “after” can fully appreciate the work it takes to keep God’s Acre looking the way it does.
