A Seed Is Planted on Seventh...

In the beginning...there were empty flower beds and a dream...
add one expert...Allentown's Bernadette Cozart's knowledge...
and an army of about 50 committed volunteers... armed with cafe seats no less... another army of some really cute industrious kids...
some REALLY cute kids on top of things...
and you get the makings of a really great earth day...here are more people that made 7th Street's Spring Offensive such a great success...
Yodi reaching new heights...
Becky - head of Promotions with businesswoman Dorcas...also from Promotions...they have worked hard to get to this day
more happy volunteers...and expert planter donato dequinto and his lovely wife Joan :)
and 7th street's muscle lending a hand!

Ernie Atiyeh...7th street's fearless leader
Chensters Matt Lewis and Sarah Fulton interview our Winston!City Staff helping out the causemore fabu interfaith coalition volunteers...they just rock!

That´s what i´m talking about!!!!, when ever i mentioned the great name of the City of Allentown in Pennsylvania USA baby, there is no place like this, and there aren´t great people like this in other community, Peter, Yodi, Mayor Ed Palowski, and all the great volunteers that make this happen, this is what I field and think about my Great City of Allentown and i´m just a regular resident called MOJADO, Fernando Vázquez, cogratulations to all of you.
