Articles About Neighborhood block parties
Susan Gartner is one of several residents of the Davis/Whiteman/Phillips Street area who have made block parties a spirited annual event in their neighborhood.
Organizers of the annual neighborhood block parties want participants to have a good time. But beyond that, they aim to strengthen the ties between those who live close to each other in Yellow Springs.
Neighborhood block parties, sponsored by the Village Human Relations Commission, will take place next weekend, Aug. 19–21, with most taking place from 5–8 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 21. Many neighborhoods are already organized for parties, but some are not; interested villagers should contact Joan Chappelle at 767-7056.
