Gwen Chastain, Social Committee Chair & Old Northside Association Board Director
On Saturday August 28th neighbors came out for the Old Northside Yard Hop event. The event was coordinated by the ONS Social Committee. Three hosts offered their yard space for neighbors to socialize, Inga Brissman and Matt Ritter on Broadway Street, Murphy Hendy and Lewis Thelen on New Jersey Street, and Russ and Joan Forthofer on Park Avenue. It was a hot summer evening but many neighbors came out to enjoy both socializing and seeing beautiful yards.
Host Russ Forthofer shared, “So glad we were a host site for the ONS Yard Hop. It was great to meet new friends and visit with everyone. We loved how our circle of chairs kept expanding as the evening went on!”
Even with hot temperatures many enjoyed meeting new neighbors. “As first-time Yard Hop hosts, we really enjoyed meeting and socializing with new neighbors during the event. Having an event like this helped us feel more connected to our community and neighbors, especially as relatively new additions to the neighborhood. We would love to host again soon!” said Inga Brissman.
We appreciate our hosts and neighbors that joined us for the Yard Hop. Our next neighborhood event will be the Fall Clean Up on Saturday September 25th at 10am. Meet at Great Oak Commons.
Please save the dates for the following upcoming neighborhood events. Wreath of Davey Jones, Friday October 8th, Plunder in the Park Saturday Oct 23th, 6:00 - 10:00pm. Additional information will be shared on our website www.oldnorthside.org, through social media, and Nextdoor.
