The Spencer Road Neighborhood Association’s second annual Spencer Road Neighborhood Block Party will be on Sunday, August 13th! The party will go from noon to 4:00 and will be on the 400 block of Spencer Road, between the Stone Quarry Road and South Meadow Street Extension intersections, in front of Stone Quarry Apartments. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers will be donated by the Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services, but please bring a side dish or dessert to share with your neighbors.
We have a lot of new events planned for this fun family-oriented party, including a fire truck visit from 12:30pm to 3:30pm, basketball and other games, and a raffle featuring items donated by local businesses (drawing at 3pm).
This should be a fun event for everyone, so please come and meet your neighbors!

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
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.
