Mark your calendars for a nice Earth Day celebration in Curtis Green park on Saturday afternoon, April 25th. Surprised at such advanced warning? That’s because you are cordially invited to help shape what this event becomes.
Left to their own devices, Nicky and Louella will have some trees you can plant at or near your house (and some volunteer muscle to help make that happen) as well as some eats and good company.
If you would like to add your time, energy, and ideas to the mix, we would love to hear from you. Email Louella or Nicky — we’re putting together an email group so we can keep meetings to a minimum and fun to a maximum.
Sound good? We hope so. Looking forward to seeing what develops.
Free Youth Cooking Classes!

After each session, students will bring home free ingredients and recipes to share with their families. If you are interested in signing up youth ages 8-12, or for more information, please contact Brittany Bradd at 313-212-8851.
We get together to play all kinds of games on Sundays at the spiral bench on Lamphere just south of Chalfonte.
It's a completely drop-in Sunday funday with games like Scrabble, Pictionary, Uno, Chess, Jenga, Taboo, and cards. Don't see your favorite game listed? We may have acquired it or you can bring it with you and teach folks how to play.
If you're feeling like a little more action, we've got some lawn games and some kids are always up for freeze tag or something else wiggly.
Since it's outdoor fun, we cancel when the weather doesn't cooperate. (Maybe in the winter we'll build snow creatures? Only time will tell.)
Come join the fun and meet some new neighbors!
We meet on the first Thursday of every month to check in with our neighbors, share a meal, and race through what happened last month and what's on the docket for next month. The meetings are open to all and take place at St. Christine's Soup Kitchen at the corner of Dacosta and Fenkell. Chatting and chewing starts at 6:30, the official meeting starts at 7, and we strive to end the business by 8:30.
We welcome all interested parties and encourage you come whether or not you've had a chance to whip up something tasty in your kitchen. Sliced watermelon or a carry out pizza are great offerings, and if you don't have time to pick up or whip up something, we still want to meet you!
Hope to see you soon.
