The Eastside Neighborhood Annual Picnic will take place Saturday August 4, 2018 from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at the Lions Park shelter.Big Toms will generously provide burger fixings again! We’ll do hot dogs as well, with non-meat options available. Please feel free to bring a side dish to share with your neighbors, pot luck style.In addition to getting together with your neighbors for fun stuff and great food, this year we are adding a special activity we’re calling:
Public Works Open House in the Park.
Staff from the City of Olympia Public Works Department and Eastside Neighborhood Association Board members will be there to to listen to your concerns and ideas about streets, sidewalks, sewers, water, storm water, garbage and recycling. Do you have a favorite pothole you’d like to see filled or an idea for a bike route or walking path? Then bring it to the picnic. We want to hear from you. While we can’t guarantee the pothole will be filled, we will make sure your comments are considered in the Eastside Neighborhood Subarea Plan which is currently being drafted.
The Eastside Neighborhood Association (ENA) is sponsoring four block parties in our neighborhood on Friday, July 13th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The City has now approved closures of the four blocks where the parties will be held. And it’s likely that a police rep and a city council member or two will drop by to chat with us. The party hosts will provide some food and activities. Please bring your own potluck dish or beverage. Each party will have its own set of activities. People of all ages are welcome to attend. If you have a yard game to share, or a musical instrument you’d like to play, please bring it along. You may also want to bring a chair or two.
Here are the locations of the four parties:
1. Sawyer St. SE between 7th & 9th
2. Lybarger St. SE between 10th & Union
3. McCormick St. SE between 13th & 14th
4. 5th Ave. SE between Fir & Fairview
This is the third annual block party evening. Both prior years the parties were well-attended and got excellent feedback. The goal of the parties is to help members of the Eastside Neighborhood get to know each other and make our neighborhood safer and more connected. We hope you can make it!
