Birthplace Fall Cleanup

THANK YOU, THANK YOU Nick and Kelly Georgiafandis and the Edison HS Interact Club and our employee, Jason Wolfkill for our great fall cleanup this last Saturday. They also put up some Christmas decorations. Looks like that came in the nick..of time! Nick is a Trustee of the Birthplace and he and Kelly have transformed our gardens from “eh” to spectacular over the last few years.
