Mary Liz talks to the 24 students that came today as part of the Saint Rose Service Day. She told them about the Myers Residence, what their help meant, about their contribution to historic preservation and restoring the neighborhood as well as the history of the house. The young people worked on erecting a fence, planted fruit trees, did some general grounds work, planted flowers and many other tasks. It was a great day! Community volunteers Cecila and Seth also shared in the day and very importantly Daniel added critical know how in helping erect the fence! Thanks Dan!
Among the many projects done by the Reach Out Saint Rose crew on Saturday was the erection of a fence on area bordering the Myers Property from the 99 Third Street property also owned by URHPCR. The fence is to prevent people from using the Myers lot as a cross through to a local convenience store. An alternate path has been created through the Johnson Garden a coupl eo f lots over. The Saint Rose students involved in the fence installation all seemed to be members of the basketball team.
