Neighborhood Night Out planned for October 12
By Dee Sanders
National Night Out in August saw temperatures in excess of 100 degrees. If you or any of your neighbors participated, the CYCA would like to hear about it! The sweltering temperatures are exactly why, for the past 2 years, Cooper-Young has chosen an alternate date for this event. This year we will celebrate the joys of living in CY on Tuesday, October 12. All block clubs are encouraged to host an event on this evening. Don’t miss this chance to get to know your neighbors better, while at the same time making your block a safer and more enjoyable place to live.
The first twenty blocks to inform Ginger Spickler of their party plans are entitled to reimbursement up to $50 with receipts for food purchases. Alcohol purchases are not eligible for reimbursement. You may contact Ginger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outback Steakhouse on Union Avenue has agreed, as in the past, to supply dinner for 25 people for $100 (see details below). Central Barbecue will offer a dinner of pulled pork, beans, slaw, sauce, buns, paper products, and serving utensils for $3.75 a person (15 person minimum), or 1 lb. of barbecue for $6 (3lb minimum). Both restaurants need orders placed by October 1. In addition, Target is once again sponsoring the event and will provide goodies and party favors.
Be on the lookout for details from your block club captain. If you’re not sure who your captain is or if your block even has a captain, see Ginger’s article titled “Block Clubs gearing up for Neighborhood Night Out” on page 6 for a complete listing with contact information.
