Welcome to Spring, FoPo!
We lept forward a couple weeks ago, but the weather’s currently dragging us down. We can still be excited for the season’s change, however, and have plenty to look forward to.
– Neighborhood Cleanup In what’s become an annual event to raise money for the Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association, this year’s neighborhood cleanup will take place on May 5th at Arleta Elementary. For those who are unfamiliar with the event, this is an opportunity to rid yourself of those household items that are either too big for your trash can or you’re too lazy to haul to the dump. The Neighborhood Association will provide a handful of dumpsters, thanks to vouchers from Metro, to take trash and unwanted items off your hands. For a nominal fee, which would be less than paying at the dump (plus a lot closer), you can support the NA buy disposing locally. We’ll have more details later, but the NA is also looking for volunteers to either help with unloading on site or passing out fliers to the neighborhood. Let us know if you have an interest in helping.
– Sweetness Supper Club Yes, Kay and the rest of the gang at Sweetness Bakery will be hosting another dinner event this Spring. First started in February, the Sweetness Supper Club opens the cafe to diners who would otherwise be limited to breakfast items, pastries, and coffee in the morning and early afternoon. Sweetness will show off their culinary skills with dinner now…but it’s only one night a month, and seating will be limited to 20 diners. So get your reservations in now. The next Supper Club will be on Monday, April 23rd. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to make reservations.
– FoPo Garden Tour No date has been established, but this yearly event is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors, get inspiration from other yards, and see the beauty that exists in FoPo. Usually held the third weekend in June, the all-day event typically includes raffles, food and drink (last year there was homemade beer and sangria along the route), and tee-shirts for sale. We’ll let you know the date when it’s announced.
If you have an event you’d like to draw attention to, please let us know. And as always, we’ll keep you posted on other goings on, too.
