As I was walking home last night, I saw a group of men with shovels walking up 30th Street – indeed, a rare sight. I hailed them to see if they had a business card or telephone number. Margery Elfin was at her front door and shouted to me that they do a great job. In fact, Salvadore Bautista, the leader of the group, dug the Elfins out a few years back when we had so much snow the city did not know where to put it.
I knocked on the doors of a few neighbors who had not started to tackle their walks so I could introduce them to Salvador. No one answered. But you should call him and mention that you live in Marge Elfin’s neighborhood: 301-370-0888.
If you know of others who are ready and willing to shovel, please leave a comment below.
