Dear Paris,

This week Wednesday is your day to weigh in. We've got East Side Pizzeria bringing the refreshments for the Hamm's Complex community conversation at 6pm - Wed Feb 7th. Still time to join and get your two cents in on what our neighborhood needs in those commercial uses. And you know you want whatever Rich is cooking up. We've got a Give Love, Give Blood Drive with SPPD on Valentine's Day and we've need you in the mix on East Side safety: SPPD Community Meeting Feb 20 is open to all. We'll be going. If you can't make it but want to raise an issue, send it to Paris. Then get the sparkles ready - Gala4Goals coming your way Feb 24th. Gift certificates for experiences and East Side excellence wanted so we can put you on that Silent Auction Table. Info here about how you can join Tony Sanneh's event and help make the East Side shine.
