Recipe of the Week

In Parkland, Garfield street presents a clean-up opportunity of community-wide importance. It is likely the mostwalked street in this area and consequently is almost always littered with candy wrappers, lunch papers, etc. Merchants along the street devote their efforts daily to cleaning off areas immediate to their places of business. Without their effo;ts, the conditions along the street would be most disgraceful.

But, there is much of the two long blocks of Garfield street Ilrookdale Lumber Co. that they leave untouched, presenting excellent opponuniry for display of civic mindedness during the coming clean-up. Garfield street could and should be a most attractive street. Just a very little work will put it so and just a little continuing thoughtfulness will keep it that way.
