9/11 Day of Service and
Jonas Green Park, Annapolis
Saturday, September 12th, 2015
8:00 am - Noon
To commemorate Marylanders who have lost their lives in service to their country, including on 9/11, the day will begin at 8:30 am with a brief ceremony at the Maryland World War II Memorial located in the median at 1920 Ritchie Highway, Route 450, Annapolis.
Volunteer sign-in begins at 8:00 am. From 9:00 am until noon, volunteers will participate in environmental service projects beginning at the WW II Memorial and continuing to Jonas Green Park at the foot of the Naval Academy Bridge. This is a “rain or shine event” and will only be delayed or cancelled if there are local thunder storms.
In addition to weeding, planting and mulching to control stormwater runoff, we will participate in the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) as volunteers record items of debris they find, giving a clearer picture of the items impacting the health of the Chesapeake Bay. Come help, and bring your friends!
Opportunities for community service credits are available. Students under the age of 18 must have written parental permission. Those under 16 must not only have written parental permission, but an adult on site as well. Wear sturdy shoes or boots (no flip flops), bring a hat, gardening equipment, if you have tools - sunscreen, sunglasses and gloves. Water and some tools will be provided. Parking is strongly recommended at the WWII Memorial on Route 450.
