i scream, you scream...

...we all scream for ice cream! Our neighborhood association president recently entered Patterson Park into Edy's Neighborhood Salute. And guess what? Well, of course we won! I thought her 250-word entry really demonstrated what a hard-working, cohesive group we have in our neighborhood. It really sums up why so many of us love living here (and why it's nice to get a little recognition from the outside world sometimes too!). Have a loot at her winning entry:

Patterson Park neighborhood is a vibrant, diverse community in Baltimore, MD. To say our neighborhood is a social group is an understatement! Most of our time spent socializing is during and after the hard work we put in volunteering our time to improve the neighborhood and the City. Every weekend we meet up to do many different projects including neighborhood and alley clean-ups, tree and flower plantings, Citizens on Patrol walks, sponsoring and coaching youth sports teams, as well as many other week night projects as well!

An ice cream party would allow us all a reason to get together that doesn’t involve a project. It will give us an opportunity to sit back and admire what we all have accomplished by working together. In the 5 years that I have lived in the neighborhood, I have seen our neighborhood transform into a safer, cleaner, and greener community, all through volunteer time of neighbors. Its time for us to celebrate all that we’ve achieved and I can’t think of a better way than the Edy’s Neighborhood Salute!

So stay tuned for further details, but tentatively pencil Saturday, July 25th in to your calendars for a neighborhood ice cream party to celebrate our hard work!
