The DeMeo Park clean up was amazing. Westenders joined together with Chop’s Interact Club, Santa Rosa West Rotary Club and Boy Scout Troop 509 to give the park a Spring cleaning. See photos and more below. April 22nd, Sunday is Earth Day- you can help clean the Prince Memorial Greenway on Saturday and enjoy the  Earth Day Festival in Courthouse Square on Sunday.    

DeMeo Park Community Cleanup. Thanks to all the folks who spent their Saturday to clean up DeMeo Park. The park was in sad shape- weeds had invaded, the bocce courts were a wreck , ivy and privets had claimed ownership of the cyclone fences.  After hours of hard labor, the park has improved and wood chips are being spread to prevent new weeds. On future clean ups we will paint and repair the picket fences, continue grooming the bushes and clean up.  Thank you wonderful West Enders, S. R. West Rotary Club, Chop’s Interact Club and Boy Scout Troop 509. DeMeo Park Cleanup Photos
