PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Dulye Leadership Experience (DLE) is joining with Pittsfield Beautiful and Pittsfield Commissioner of Public Services Ricardo Morales for a third round of floral planting on North Street on Saturday, Oct. 2 starting at 9:00 a.m.
DLE President Linda Dulye has rallied dozens of volunteers from the Berkshire-based professional development organization, and a local greenhouse will deliver 150 mums for planting in garden beds in the North Street business district between Mellville and Bradford Streets, just a few blocks from the DLE headquarters.
This is the DLE's fourth community service project in 2021 to support Pittsfield's streetscape beautification.
In May, DLE volunteers participated in the annual Downtown Pittsfield Cleanup Program. On July 31, DLE volunteers cleared debris and weeds from garden beds outside of Dottie's Coffee Lounge at the corner of North and Lincoln Streets. A third project was completed Aug. 21, when more than 125 flowers were planted by DLE volunteers in Pittsfield's business district between Summer Street and Union Street.
Established in 2008, DLE connects professionals from diverse industries, positions and organizations in the Berkshires and beyond through in-person and virtual career development and networking opportunities, year-round.
