Update #5

Citizen Paint: on for tomorrow


Hello Citizens,

The weather looks agreeable enough to encourage you all to join us on Rhode Island Avenue to transform the corner of our community with creativity.  The entire Better Block Festival will mobilize at noon and the fun lasts until rain or wind send us home.  Wear a jacket, consider a hat -- come on down to shop, to socialize, and to enjoy green living workshops and local musicians, good eats from Fogol Brothers food truck and LOTS OF ART MAKING!

Stroll along the Avenue and check out the other aesthetic improvements our team provided to 4 businesses.  

Check out the outline of the design that Valerie, Shahin, and Nehemiah have completed.  Its ready for color by YOU!

Many thanks for your support of our community!
