NEW EVENT! Norwood Spring Clean: Beautify Your Block 2009

May 16, 2009
9:30am - 12noon

Why “Beautify Your Block”?

Litter is a problem in our community and many hands make light work.

What is it?
Beautify Your Block is a call to action for all citizens of Norwood. We ask that you pick up only one piece of trash on your block on May 16th. That’s it! If every citizen participated, Norwood would be remarkably cleaner.

How can you help?
Like we said, pick up one piece of trash on your block on May 16th. Want to do more? The organized cleanup effort will take place from 9:30am -12 noon on May 16th. Both groups and individuals are welcome to register. We need all the help we can get!

Groups will gather and park in the lot on the corner of Sherman Ave. and Station Ave. Grab a hot cup of coffee, review the map, and get ready to make Norwood beautiful!

Download the event flyer and pass it on!
Please take a look at the MAP and click "edit" to mark areas of most need.

NYP Pub Crawl!

Join the Norwood Young Professionals for the first annual NYP Pub Crawl to drink away those January blues! We'll be visiting 9 of Norwood's most popular bars including those favorite neighborhood dive bars that you've been dying to visit. The bus will leave from Rookwood Pub at 7:30 and make 8 more stops. A wrist band will give you access to drink specials at each place. The bus will drop you back off at Rookwood Commons after the round trip is over. Cost for the night is $20 with proceeds going to support NYP. Email norwoodyp@gmail.com to request an invitation.

Spots will be reserved for the first 40 people that pay online via paypal.

Please remember to drink responsibly and arrange a ride home if necessary!
