One way to be a good neighbor is to come to my party!

During these busy times when life is so full and complicated, it's good to slow down and take the time to relax and realize what we have around us.

We hope you can make some connections and help us all enrich our neighborhood.

So, let's make the most of this beautiful day
Since we're together we might as well say
Would you be mine, could you be mine
Won't you be my neighbor?

Please drop by for a visit on Sunday, April 10 from 2pm - 5pm at our home, 3622 NE 18th. This will be a kid- (and adult-) friendly event with some offerings of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as an assortment of other snacks. Please feel free to bring your own libation and/or edible to share. RSVP not necessary.

See you on the 10th of April!
