Fifty volunteers took part in a clean-up of Forest Park's Mary Whalen Playground on Saturday. Mary Whalen is a former president of the WRBA who died in 1987. The clean-up, organized by the Woodhaven Residents' Block Association (WRBA), resulted in the collection of over 100 garbage bags of leaves and other debris. "In just a couple of hours, we managed to make a significant, visible improvement in Woodhaven,” said WRBA President Martin Colberg said. “That's what can happen when residents in our community come together." The WRBA has future clean-ups in its plans and encourages anyone interested to contact the Block Association at firstname.lastname@example.org. The organization's next town hall will be Saturday, May 17, 1 p.m. at the American Legion Hall, 89-02 91st Street.
