The first Spencer Road neighborhood block party, jointly sponsored by INHS and the neighbors, will be held on Sunday, August 7 from noon until 4 PM. Please join us in front of the Stone Quarry Apartments, rain or shine, for an afternoon of good food and good fellowship. Everyone who lives on Spencer Road, South Meadow Street Extension, Morris Heights, and lower Stone Quarry Road is welcome!
To make the event a success, we need your help. Everyone should their bring plates, cups, and eating utensils. Please also bring a dish to share.
We also need volunteers to help with set up (from 11 to noon) and clean up (from 4 to 5).
The 400 block of Spencer Road will be closed from 11 to 5. Signs will be up and barriers will be in place, but we need people to stand by the barriers at each end of the block to redirect traffic. If you would be willing to spend an hour helping to keep the street traffic free for the party, please let me know! (Contact info is at the end of this message.)
Have a talent to share? If you, or a friend, would like to perform, there will be a PA/karaoke system under the tent in front of the Stone Quarry Apartments. Let us know, and we will reserve a time for you. We also hope to have some activities for children. If you have ideas or if you would like to help. let us know!
Are you able to help with the supplies? We plan to have some grills fired up, and we hope to be able to offer burgers (including veggie burgers) and hotdogs. INHS is asking for donations from local businesses, but any help you can provide would be great! We will need
- condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish)
- vegan burgers or other vegan items to grill
- Non-alcoholic drinks
- paper supplies (additional paper plates, napkins, cups, paper towels)
- hamburger and hotdog buns
Donations of these items can be dropped off ahead of time with Sandy Conrad in the Stone Quarry Apartment office. Please label them “For Block Party.”
Most important, COME! Please join us to enjoy a few traffic-free hours in our neighborhood. Come meet your neighbors, old and new, and help us build a sense of community.
See you on Sunday, August 7th, from noon to 4 PM!
