September 8 Cleanup & Celebration Along Rhode Island Ave

Come out Saturday, September 8 and show Rhode Island Ave some love! Mount Rainier is working across Eastern Ave with DC's Friends of Rhode Island Ave (FoRIA) to clean up our mutual main street. At 10am Mount Rainier volunteers will meet at Bunker Hill Fire Station, and FoRIA volunteers will meet at South Dakota Ave, to commence picking up litter along Rhode Island before coming together at the corner of Eastern Ave and Rhode Island Ave at noon for a cross-border celebration!

The celebration will be in conjunction with the Mount Rainier Farmer's Market (in front of the Citizen Paint Project at the corner of Eastern and Rhode Island Aves) and will include food trucks, live music, and socializing with our neighbors from across the way. Thanks to the Mount Rainier Youth and Recreation Committee for providing activities for children! Working together we can make the Rhode Island Ave we all want - bike and people safe and filled with vibrant commercial spaces!

Come to the clean up, come to the celebration, or come to both!
10am-noon - clean up along Rhode Island Ave starting at Bunker Hill Fire Station and working toward Eastern Ave
12-2pm - celebration at the corner of Eastern & Rhode Island with food trucks, live music, and friends!
