No Kibosh For the Bosque
It's that time of year. A time for flowers, candy, stuffed bears and romantic dinners … or if you're anything like me, a night of staying in, Chinese food, a bad movie marathon and maybe a little Sonics to improve my mood. Regardless, some may view Valentine's as nothing more than an excuse to splurge on the one person who already eats up their wallet, but hey, who are we to judge? As Janis Joplin once said, “get it while you can.” But for those of you who aren't “getting it,” so to speak, there's an event that can make you feel good about yourself without having to sit at home, whining and pining for a nonexistant person. It's called the I Heart the Bosque Valentine's Day Clean-Up. Granted, it's not on Valentine's Day (but on Feb. 15), so you can actually partake in both the traditional festivities as well as this environmentally sound clean-up. Participants will be split into teams, and commence cleaning up the Bosque. People are encouraged to bring their own water, gloves, sack lunch, etc. Ps. The winning team gets a prize. And there will also be an educational walk at noon. So, if you're interested in sending a “valentine to the Bosque,” meet at the parking lot at Tingley Beach (1800 Tingley Dr.) at 10am. For more information, call Camilla at 715-8388. (Mark Lopez)
