Last year's Davis/Whiteman/Phillips street block party resembled a cafe, with tables covered with tablecloths and fresh flowers. The Human Relations Commission urges villagers to organize a partiy for their neighborhood on either Saturday, Aug. 18, or Sunday, Aug. 19.

The annual neighborhood block parties, sponsored by the Human Relations Commission, or HRC, will take place in Yellow Springs the weekend of Aug. 18–19, Villagers who want to organize a party for their neighborhood are urged to contact HRC member Patti Dallas as soon as possible at pattidallas22@sbcglobal.net.

The purpose of the events, which are in their third year, is to promote community, according to organizers.

Parties are already planned for the neighborhoods of Davis/Whiteman/Phillips, Omar Circle/Talus Drive, Meadow Lane, Stafford/Union, Whitehall/Fair Acres, Kings Court, Golden Willow Court and Walnut/Cliff/Cemetery streets. Those who plan a party receive from the HRC a voucher from Tom’s Market, an emergency neighborhood contact form, chalk for decorating sidewalks and streets and name tags provided by the Yellow Springs News.

For a more detailed story on the block parties, see the Aug. 2 issue of the Yellow Springs News.
