Block Party Success
It didn’t rain and our first Block Party was a roaring success. Not only was the food great, but it seemed like everyone had a fun time and that the goal of building community was met. This was truly a community event in that so many neighbors pitched in to pull this off.
We want to give a big thank you to everyone for your commitment to the neighborhood and for all of the work you put into this event, whether it was with publicity, signs, passing out flyers, making a dish, bringing tables, bringing chairs, setting up, tearing down, face painting, bringing a bounce house, inviting friends, letting us use your grill, picking up drinks at the store at the last minute, offering to help in any way, donating supplies for the event, etc… A big thanks also to Queen for her hard work and for being our emcee and for tracking down the bands and for making quite a bit of food, to Mark & Sarah for being a host, to Code Enforcement and to the Sacramento County Sheriff for representing yourselves at the Block Party, to Windy and her daughter for taking sign-ups for the Relay for Life (we now have 14 neighborhood team members), to all who worked so hard on set-up and tear down (Rich, Janel, Jamie, Inscos, John, Roy, William… and many others) and to the two bands and one rapper who came out tonight. Thanks also to the Grapevine for supplying us with free newspapers to pass out.
Let’s keep moving forward in building a tremendously strong neighborhood.
