September events heat up the neighborhood
During these hot months I walk my dog, Bacon, early in the morning and late at night. The temperatures aren’t that much cooler but at least the sun isn’t bearing down. This early/late schedule isn’t just for my sake. Trust me, Bacon prefers these times too.
Extreme temperatures are a good time to remind all that a hot house or car is no place for any of Bacon’s animal friends. Although July’s Lamplighter and CYCA general meeting focused on the Smallest User Contest and reducing energy consumption, winning a contest isn’t everything. Please take care of those needing cooler temperatures.
September in Cooper-Young will still be H-O-T. I’m not just talking about the weather. I’m talking about the numerous upcoming events that are sure to make our neighborhood sizzle with activity and excitement. There will be a book signing on Tuesday, September 14, for the CYCA sponsored CY History book. You can purchase your own copy of Cooper-Young: A Community that Works on that day and have it signed by the authors, Lisa Lumb and Jim Kovarik. On September 17 you can run, jog, walk, or stroll in the Festival Friday 4 Miler. No matter your pace be sure to enjoy the Neighbors Light the Way parties along the race route. And of course, Saturday, September 18, is the annual Cooper-Young Festival hosted by our sister organization the CY Business Association. With food, art, and friends, this is a great way to spend the day – and it’s all in our own backyard, or more correctly, on our own Cooper Street.
Plan to be a part of this neighborhood holiday! The 4 Miler and Festival weekend is a time of celebration for residents and friends of Cooper-Young. So everyone come out and enjoy yourself!
