Just a reminder that there is no Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council meeting this month. Normally the EGNC meets on the second Wednesday of each month, but this is not the case for July, when we traditionally take a break for the summer holidays.
There is, however, a Neighborhood Planning meeting on this Wednesday, July 10, at the Corbin Senior Center [map]. It starts at 7pm and will run about an hour. If you’re on Facebook, please RSVP here (and please “Like” the E-G Neighborhood page while you’re at it).
This is an ideal activity for anyone with an interest in helping to determine what our neighborhood looks like in five, ten or even twenty years’ time — it doesn’t matter whether you’re a seasoned neighborhood stalwart or just someone who’s curious about Emerson-Garfield’s future.
But one meeting instead of two doesn’t mean that there’s nothing going on. Looking ahead into July and August, we have the launch of our first-ever weekly farmers’ market on Friday, July 19 (click here for times, location, and more details). We also have a free concert in Emerson Park [map] on Sunday, July 28, which is also the same day as the Christ Our Hope Bible Church’s Parking Lot Party. Fortunately, they only overlap by half an hour. Hit the concert first at 4pm, then head down to the PLP!
In August, we have our annual summer potluck. This year it’s in Corbin Park [map] and starts at 6pm. That will happen in place of the August EGNC meeting — in other words, on Wednesday, August 14.
Get an overview of all those events on our calendar page or on Facebook; registered Facebook users are encouraged to RSVP. We’re also asking for your help to spread the word — more on that (with download links to flyers for printing) is here.
