SF Arbor Day! (yeah, were still on the job,) and DPW Clean team celebrate 10 year anniversary event at Alemany Gardens.
This morning, the City kicked off the annual Arbor Day celebration in District 9. Joining the volunteers and workers were Department Heads and SF Supervisors David Campos, John Avalos, and Board President David Chiu. CAO Ed Lee, Director Ed Reiskin, and Mohammed Nuru had many speakers to introduce including Walgreens which submitted a $10,000 check. Ramon, Vince, Nikki, Javier, and David accepted an award on behalf of LiUNA!, Local 261 for the membership's contribution and efforts. Ramon welcomed the workers and thanked them for their labor during this popular event with the public, while Vince assured that those suffering from the "pink flu this morning, try not to believe everything that they read in the papers or see on TV," because "we're closer to alternatives than you might think."
