This weekend, tons of volunteers descend on Sherwood Mill Pond. They’ll plant a bazillion grass plugs, plants, shrubs and trees, turning the old Allen’s Clam House parking lot into a legitimate park/preserve.
It’s the culmination of hard work by hordes of folks, including the Sherwood Mill Pond Committee, Public Works and Parks & Rec Department; people who donated money and goods; neighbors and friends, clubs and organizations.
But the volunteer planters still have to eat. So Elvira’s — the round-the-corner, much beloved deli/pizzeria/general store — is donating food. And they’re naming a sandwich after the park.
The Sherwood Mill Pond sandwich is filled with grilled chicken, grilled onions, peppers, mushrooms and melted cheese.
And, of course, heaps of love for the neighborhood that loves Elvira’s right back.
