Project Whitewash, May 31st0
This is a small write up of what went on for San Antonio’s project Whitewash, basically a volunteer cleaning of our respective training areas.

The day started a little later than originally planned due to direction errors and some postponing of the times. We got started near the federal courthouse around noon where years of tacs and cats had blackened a good portion of the walls. It was definitely a lot more difficult than we expected and after about an hour we had cleaned only about a 5 feet high by 6 wide foot section of the wall.
From there we garnered our losses and continued on to the Wooden playground of Hemisfair park where we picked up trash for about 2 hours, focusing mostly on the perimeter of the park. All in all it was a good experience and if anything else it helped clean up our park a little bit. I recently got in contact with Parks and rec so hopefully more thorough operations like this can continue!
