North Adams: MCLA, city to hold Fall Day of Service

Wednesday October 10, 2012

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, along with the city of North Adams and community organizations, will hold a Fall Day of Service from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13.

Students and residents will roll up their sleeves and work together in one of two projects.

In the first project, MCLA students and community members will plant several hundred flower bulbs on the college campus in partnership with the college’s facilities department. For the second project, other volunteers will beautify and maintain a section of the historical Hillside Cemetery.

All those interested in participating are welcome. Transportation to the cemetery will be provided. All participants should meet at 9:45 a.m. in the parking lot behind the Freel Library, on Blackinton Street.

A free pizza lunch will be provided. Participants should bring work gloves.

To sign up or for more information, contact Spencer Moser, coordinator of MCLA’s Center for Service and Citizenship, at (413) 662-5251 or
