Happy Sunday FOSC Crew,
Yesterday's first cleanup at Austin Square Park
was a huge success, so a *very big thank you* to everyone that was able to
come out and help us dig in for the first time!
We had a showing of over 20 volunteers, and we were able to prep much of
the area for the large bin that has been donated by the City of Oakland (
supposed to be delivered in time for our December 6 workday).
If you are on Facebook, please "Like" our
Austin Square Park
and check out a number of before and after photos from Saturday's event.

Thank you again to everyone that came out! We look forward to welcoming
everyone that can make it out to our December 6 workday, which will include
a mural painting, an insect table, and a continuance of the general
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
