Put on your work clothes and show up to beautify the center gem of our neighborhood, Lane Middle School!  At nearly 100 years old, Lane MS is still standing tall, but could use a little tidying up.  Help shake off those winter blues by pruning, weeding, raking, and cleaning.  (Then enjoy some fun down the street at the Learning Gardens Lab Earth Day Festival.)
