MANCHESTER – NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire celebrated its 17th annual NeighborWorks Week NeighborFest on June 13 on Ash Street in Nashua.

More than 20 volunteers worked in the Los Amigos Playground and up and down Ash Street cleaning up trash, weeding and laying mulch. The event also served as a kickoff to summer for neighborhood residents.

“NeighborWorks Week has historically been a tool for our organization to mobilize community residents in the Manchester area to give back to their community, and this is the first year we have transitioned the event to Nashua,” said Jennifer Vadney, neighborhood development manager at NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire.

“Thanks to all the residents and so many others involved, the event on Ash Street was a huge success. By working with organizations such as Nashua PAL, we can continue to gain momentum in revitalizing the Tree Streets neighborhood.”

NeighborWorks Week is a national celebration during which thousands of volunteers come together to help make their neighborhoods healthy, sustainable places to work, play and call home.

The activities on Ash Street included laying mulch, which was provided by the Nashua Parks and Recreation Department. Other activities included the cleanup of the street and the skate park across from the Nashua Police Athletic League headquarters.

Several volunteers, including NeighborWorks Southern New Hampshire board of directors member James Vayo, joined in on the cleanup after posting walking signs along the Nashua Heritage Rail Trail as a part of the Walk Nashua initiative.
