GARDENING HELP FOR OUR SENIOR NEIGHBORS

The Juniper Park Civic Association has arranged with the Juniper Junior Civic Association ‒ the Juniper Juniors ‒ to help with gardening or yard chores for our senior neighbors. Perhaps you need your garage reorganized, your curb or sidewalk swept from time to time.

Seniors just need to phone the Civic's office: 718-651-5865. Or, you can write to the Juniper Juniors Gardening c/o JPCA at: PO Box 790275, Middle Village, NY 11379. The Civic will contact a Junior who lives nearest to the homeowner. The Junior will then contact the homeowner.

The Juniper Junior is willing to perform the chores for reasonable payment. The homeowner and the Junior will make those arrangements. The Civic Association will receive no payment.

The Juniors will need some patient instruction and supervision regarding gardening or yard chores. They are young, so they cannot be asked to perform some chores, especially involving heavy items or the removal of any dangerous material.

These Juniper Juniors are the youngsters who have been removing graffiti throughout our community, helping plant daffodils in Juniper Park, and who have been learning to become good citizens and our future community leaders.

Gardening and yard chores are another opportunity for these youngsters to make another contribution. This will be an opportunity for you to meet and speak to some of our neighborhood's finest youngsters.
