Dear Marvin,

I hope all is well. Here are some updates and resources to be aware of this week.
 
Thank you to the Gwynn Falls Parkway communities and those who traveled to support the clean up on Saturday. Collectively, we amassed over 90 volunteers to clean from Druid Hill Park to Leakin Park. Huge thank you to our organizing partners: Victor Ukpolo, Iota Phi Theta Gamma Omicron Omega, Bmore Beautiful, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and my staff. It was great to see Mayor Brandon M. Scott and Senator Antonio Hayes joining the effort as well!
