Hey everybody, I’m looking for advice on the sort of language I should use in promoting an event I’m gathering up. Here’s the skinny: I’m organizing a bunch of people from the community to go down to the local river for a day of cleaning up, thanksgiving potluck, and a night of camping out.
I think it’s hard to get people excited about a “cleanup”, though, and was wondering if there were a better word I could use here. We’ll be clearing trails, building outhouses and benches for visitor use, doing some picking up of trash, and generally getting a new park ready for public use in the next spring.
“Cleanup” doesn’t really encompass any of that, and nobody gets excited about cleaning.
