This past Sunday we had another exciting and productive Clean and Green event at Ennis Playground. Volunteers from Gowanus Alliance, Gowanus Canal Conservancy, Whole Foods, and residents of the neighborhood joined forces and cleaned up our beloved park. Raizes do Brasil Capoeira brought volunteers as well and after lunch (donated by Number One Deli and Whole Foods) they performed series of Capoeira dances! We also had a raffle game with Gowanus Gang coins and one family won a gift certificate to Table 87, yum! We are so thankful for everyone who came out to help on a hot Sunday afternoon and we look forward to future events with more people for better Ennis Playground.

“The government competition is alarming… This is why our leaders like Brad Lander need to not only protect our community job base, but allow substantial growth up. Otherwise we will hemorrhage till we are no longer able to survive. It’s one thing to be under assault by organizations with agendas, it’s completely another to be harmed by a government that taxes your success while using that money to diminish your ability to compete. Please help us, its time to finalize a plan so people can move forward. The delay in such a plan allows for uncertainty that keeps us uncompetitive.” ~ Paul Basile, President GA
