Dear Block Association Members,
Per our usual summer schedule, there will be no August Block Association meeting. We’ll reconvene our regular meetings on Wednesday September 18th.
The annual Youth Day / Block Party is this Saturday, Aug 24th, from 9am-7pm. Parking will be suspended for the duration. We hope to see everyone enjoying the day and helping celebrate our youth.
The garden rebuild is currently in a holding pattern as we continue to insist with Parks and Green Thumb on the removal of the widespread debris mixed in with the soil. Those that have been in the garden report seeing broken glass, brick, metal and other inorganic materials embedded in the soil, which poses a hazard to the community, and in particular, children. As soon as the problem has been rectified we will continue with the rebuilding of the community garden. If you would like to make a donation to help the rebuild process you may do so here: https://ioby.org/project/new-123rd-street-community-garden.
Thank you for your patience and enjoy the rest of the summer!
