Wash the Bridge!

April 29, 2018

Washington Bridge is a historical and beautiful piece of our neighborhood. This Spring the Lawsona Fern Creak beautification committee organized a small get together to give the bridge some love and attention it deserved. We enjoyed ourselves and recruited a passing by neighbor to join in on the fun! You can see the difference the cleaning made with the polished side on the right and the to be cleaned side on the left.
