Dan Slattery to Melrose Running Club · Attention MRC! This coming Tuesday Night, 9/10, will be not only FREE PIZZA NIGHT, but also MRC Clean Up Run Night in Melrose. Also known as Plogging (wait for the jokes...!), it's is a combination of jogging with picking up litter. It started as an organized activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution. While a new idea, some MRC'ers, including Courtney Koschei, have made reference to it in the past as a good idea, so thank you all.
So, if you're interested (you can run and do your own thing - this is strictly optional/volunteer based), wear your MRC colors (we'll look to take a few photos and send to the Free Press) and be at the Knights right before the Announcements - say 6:50pm. If you're IN, comment below so I can get a semi-accurate headcount for Ann White, Asst. Dir of DPW.
The Mayor's office and DPW will be dropping gloves and bags at my house by that day, so no need to bring anything. The areas of focus will be nearby/ mostly downtown.
