East Mill Street Block Party

So, the block party we helped organize with a few neighbors was a real success -- we counted at least 65 people at one point. (There are about 100 houses in the neighborhood.) We had a band (the Zephyr Valley Strong Band) and a pot luck, and the police and fire department showed up for the kids. We had maybe a dozen or so kids from the neighborhood participate; they ran around a neighbor's lawn and found a nest of bunnies to keep them occupied. People met and exchanged business cards, and all in all it was worth the months of work. Even the rain cooperated, stopping for about 12 hours (save a few minor showers.)
