On a chilly Saturday morning in mid-February, several people from around Doraville came out to do a general clean-up of Oakcliff Road in Doraville. Dave Bearse, Bonnie Grey Flynt, Ginger Paige, Jason Jones, Ben Crawford, Michael McDaniel, Angel Gordon, Travon Gordon, Merle Evans, and Susan Fraysse all took part.
In addition to the usual trash, there was quite a bit of earth and pine straw built up on the road on Oakcliff Road in unincorporated DeKalb County. Near the storm drains it was so bad that there were small pine trees growing on the road and larger tree roots were also established in that dirt requiring much chopping and shoveling to try to clear the blockage. There is still more to be done but the team made a lot of progress in February.
Following the morning’s work everyone was invited back to Ben and Susan Crawford’s house for coffee and pastries. It was a very pleasant and productive morning for all who attended.
