Neighborhood Meet Up: Wed April 23, 7pm

Our monthly neighbors-meet up is this week: Wednesday April 23, 7pm, at the Union Market, 2306 Jefferson Avenue.

We do a little bit of business, focusing on positive change in the neighborhood, followed by friendly socializing with a healthy dose of eating and drinking.

We keep the agenda brief--using the social time afterwards to discuss things in as much detail as you like with friends and neighbors. 

If you have something to add to the agenda, please contact Mary Field at
