Poop Patrol! The cold and dark days of winter are almost gone.  If you’ve been up to M Street Park lately, you can see the “little gifts” left by dogs and owners turning a blind eye when no one was looking.  Let’s get the park warm weather ready! If you’re a dog owner and would like to lend a hand picking up after those owners who didn’t,  join the poop patrol on Saturday, May 10th to help clean up the park. Although this group love the pooches, they’re encouraging owners to leave them home during this cleanup.  After a few hours of hard work, the group plans to go out for drinks to celebrate a job well done! We raise our glass to this group of good neighbors! No need to RSVP, just show up anytime during the two hour window between 1pm-3pm. Boston Shines is also taking place on Saturday, May 10th.  Help pitch in to keep our neighborhood clean! https://caughtinsouthie.com/feature/boston-shines
