On Sabbath June 7, I was the team lead for a small group of volunteers who participated in the Beyond the Walls “Clean Up Hyattsville” outreach activity. It first appeared that our activity was going to be a wash, because when we got to Huerich Park, our assigned location, we couldn’t find the park ranger. We were supposed to meet her to get our cleaning supplies (gloves, bags, etc.). What to do? We “radioed” back in to “headquarters” (Melissa and Vonric) for support, but while we were waiting on them to track down the ranger, we decided that we would complete this outreach on our own! If we couldn’t find supplies, we would get our own supplies.
