On Saturday, October 24 the Friends of Ramsay Park (a project of St. Stephen’s Youth Programs and the B-PEACE for Jorge Campaign) spent the morning giving the park a thorough fall cleaning. Neighbors from around the South End/Lower Roxbury were joined by Northeastern students (as part of the Northeastern Center for Community Service’s NU Service Day), Washington Gateway Main Streets, teens from Vibrant Boston, and members of the South End Neighborhood Church and Emmanuel Gospel Center (as part of the Unite Boston BostonServes day). They raked up dozens of bags of leaves, picked up trash, and planted hundreds of daffodil bulbs around the tennis courts and the airplane statue commemorating Captain David Ramsay. The day concluded with a performance by the Praise and Worship team from People’s Baptist Church , lead by the rockstar Reverend David Wright of the Black Ministerial Alliance.
