Street Party Coming to a Block Near You

By Susan Gartner

Don't forget! Yellow Springs Community-Wide Block Party weekend is August 20-21. Contact Joan Chappelle at 767-7056 or Patti Dallas at 767-7884 for details and to find out if your neighborhood already has a coordinator. Don't be shy: it doesn't take much to get the party started. Grab 2 or 3 neighbors to split up the simple basics: pick a time/date and a spot in the street, stick simple invites in mailboxes, fill out the easy form to request the street being blocked off and drop off at YS police station, then let the party unfold. It IS easy being Green---suggest people bring their own table settings!

Finish the summer off with a feel-good event!
