Mr. Rogers

On Thursday, September 24th, volunteer coordinators will host various “Meet Your Neighbor” events around the City. Amsterdam’s greatest asset is its close-knit community. Our goal is to protect and enhance this asset. We wish to encourage you to take this opportunity to network, to share ideas, and work on neighborhood self-improvement projects.

Grassroots activities are planned for the following sites:

SOUTH SIDE
La Cucina from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Hosted by Rebecca Persico and Karl Baia. Pizza, pastries and appetizers.

WEST END
West End Memorial starting at 6 p.m.
Hosted by Debbie Baranello and Karin Hetrick.
Cake, candy, a caricature artist, face painter, T-shirts made with the new city logo, balloons, and raffles of donated goods from various West End businesses. Money raised will go toward planting tulips in the neighborhood.

UNION STREET HILL
Corner of Union and Orange Streets from 6 to 8 p.m.
Hosted by Kevin Phelps. Music and APD canine demonstration.

ARNOLD AVENUE TRIANGLE
McDonald’s on Market Street from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

“At the center of the universe is a
loving heart that continues to beat
and that wants the best for every person.

Anything we can do to help foster
the intellect and spirit and emotional growth
of our fellow human beings, that is our job.

Those of us who have this particular vision
must continue against all odds.

Life is for service.”
