Another successful creek clean-up of the creek on April 25th. Over 40 volunteers cleared plenty of trash from Shooks Run, especially south of Kiowa Street. An estimated four cubic yards of trash and two grocery carts!
Everyone felt great about the work accomplished. Those who stayed after the clean-up enjoyed live music and pizza provided by Harriett and Ryan. The neighborhood association wishes to thank everyone who participated and special thanks go to the clean-up organizers Harriett Landrum, Shari Pichon, Nancy Strong, and Daniel Klausmeier.

Another beautiful summer evening in one of our neighborhood parks. We enjoyed Music on the Run in North Shooks Run Park (one block north of Willamette on El Paso/Franklin Street. The “Cool for Cats” duo of Nick Davey and Jeremy Facknitz played their versions of R&B, British pop and rock, Country, and Blues music.
Folks brought their blanket or lawn chairs, their dogs and kids, and enjoyed the smooth sounds of “Cool for Cats.” Powered by the Mobile Music Project (people generating power via bicycle pedaling).
