Tom La Bonge Rolls Up Sleeves to Trim Our Trees

St. Andrews Square resident Patti Carroll saw a rather unusual sight in her neighborhood on Sunday morning:

“I drove out of my building on Manhattan Place around 11 a.m. on Sunday and was surprised to find Tom LaBonge with part time helper and college student Manny, and the CD4 cleanup truck, cutting back a tree blocking a stop sign at 2nd Street and Manhattan Place.  Manny had been cruising the neighborhood looking for discarded xmas trees.  He had picked up 60 trees before 11 a.m., when Tom called him about a tree he had noticed blocking the stop sign.  Tom rolled up his sleeves and got down and dirty!   If you see palm fronds, xmas trees, or trees blocking stop signs… just call CD4 and they’ll send out the truck (though maybe not Tom).  THANK YOU to Tom and Manny!”

And thank you, Patti, for the great photo!
