Amal Swan and her son attended to let the neighborhood know about her Catering business, called Amoula’s Morrocan Cuisine. Her son, who attends Grout shared some insightful safety concerns about how difficult it can be to cross Holgate Blvd to get to school.
Reed Neighborhood Association is teaming up with our neighbors in Creston-Kenilworth Neighborhood Association for our annual neighborhood clean-up day.
Neighborhood Clean-Up day is a local neighborhood event where you can get rid of those bulky hard to fit in the trash items while avoiding the long trip to the dump at a discounted price and it’s all for a good cause. All proceeds will benefit both neighborhood associations, sounds like a win win to me!

This weekend is the annual neighborhood clean-up with Creston-Kenilworth Neighborhood Association and we could still use more volunteers. Â Come help us out and you can dump for free! Â Such a deal. Â A few hours for the joy of being relieved of the stuff that is holding you back and taking up unnecessary space in your garage/basement/attic/house/car, you name it. Â Email me if you can volunteer a shift (or two). Â Hope to see you there!
