“Neighborhood Revival” – Party for Peace and the Parks

Adversity can lead to positive actions.

When our neighborhood was presented with the reality of a proposed high density development – Morris Square Phase II,

In one of our few remaining green spaces – Dereef Park,

In our neighborhood – Cannonborough Elliotborough,

We rallied into action and formed a non-profit group – Friends of Dereef Park.

Our mission is to preserve green space and foster the development and creation of an American Heritage Park Site – highlighting the contributions to our neighborhood and city of Native Americans, African Americans and Jewish, social, cultural and economic institutions.

Our efforts are bringing about a happy occasion – a party we’re calling “Neighborhood Revival.” It’s a Party for Peace and the Parks, promoting peace amongst neighbors and the importance of parks in creating communities.

Please come enjoy good food, hear good music, and have a good time with your friends and neighbors while learning about the history of our neighborhood on Sunday, September 16th from 1 to 4.

We anticipate a large turn out. We hope you can attend, and perhaps help spread the word about this exciting event.

Please read on if you would like to see more about our efforts and the resulting party. Read the rest of this entry »
