Block parties coming soon
- Published: August 2, 2012
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
