It seems a lot of what we hear on the Manassas blogs is a lot of bitching about Georgetown South, either implicitely or explicitely. Some City residents have even suggesting bulldozing the place over every time there is an incident over there. Insidenova.com reports the flip side of all that negativity:
MANASSAS, Va. —
Shovels, post hole diggers, rakes, brooms, trash bags, gloves, garbage cans and wheel barrows were the tools for the day on Saturday in Georgetown South.
Volunteers, many from the Manassas Assembly of God, showed up for the inaugural Georgetown South Community Cleanup to help tidy up the townhouse community off Grant Avenue in Manassas.
Pastor Doug Dreesen said the Manassas Assembly of God had “kind of adopted Georgetown South as a neighborhood we want to help.”
Church member Rich Rosene said he came out to help clean up “out of obedience to my lord and savior, Jesus Christ.”
This is what we call Talking the Talk and Walking the Walk. Hats off to the Manassas Assembly of God as well as the many other volunteers for Walking the Walk. I bet Cindy was over there somewhere also. Its just so refreshing to see and hear the folks with the solutions. Neighbors got out and met each other and lent each other a hand.
