FLASH CLEAN – City Beautifiers strike neighborhood eyesore
Esplanade public right of way returns to “civilized” levels. Fire hydrant discovered! Planted shrubs uncovered! Trash removed, all thanks to volunteer efforts.
At 10 a.m., on Saturday, October 28, 2017, Robert Thompson led the charge for a FLASH-CLEAN! Neighbors met in front of the old Circle K-Half Shell (3101 Esplanade) and mowed, trimmed and cleaned the right-of-way on Esplanade. Robert said he was tired of visitors seeing this mess. Many hands made quick work. Robert brought supplies and tools as did the neighbors who participated. The City Beautiful Committee struck and the area is much nicer now.
This area on Esplanade at Grand Route Saint John needed attention. Robert Thompson organized neighbors to give the area some love.

about a dozen bags of trash. Now visitors can see Faubourg St John and not think it’s unkempt.
