Community Events: Peace Games and Sanitation Improvement Drive (+ new maps)

- SOS Crown Heights hosts Peace, Fun, & Games in Brower Park this Thursday from 2-5pm. Complete info below.

On Thursday, June 27th, from 2-5pm, Save Our Streets Crown Heights invites you to an afternoon of peace, fun, and games at Brower Park (Park Place between Kingston and Brooklyn Aves).

The 2013 Peace Games is an event for Crown Heights families and kids to get together for pure play and laughter. There will be free snacks and soft drinks and games, games, games such as Basketball, Kick Ball, Tug O’ War, and more! Plus, there will be prizes!

So please join us and bring the whole family out for a fun summer afternoon in the park.

- The Crow Hill Community Association and their newly-formed Livable Neighborhood Working Group are leading an effort to improve sanitation along the Avenue. From their appeal, six ways to help:

  1. Sign the online petition for more public trash bins and more pick-ups of these bins. 
  2. Collect petition signatures from your neighbors. Print the petition or pick up blank petitions at HAD Associates, 737 Franklin Ave. Turn in filled-out petitions to HAD Associates by July 7. Or forward this email to neighbors to sign the online petition.
  3. Help with the neighborhood trash assessment. Adopt an intersection and collect information about the public trash bins near you. Time commitment is 15 minutes/day and it will require some online data entry. To volunteer, contact Judy at bartlettjudy@gmail.com or 347-706-1824.
  4. Join the upcoming clean-up day. Saturday, June 29, 9AM - noon. Meet at 737 Franklin Ave.
  5. Distribute flyers for the clean-up day. Print the flyer, post it in on your block or in your building, and distribute to friends and neighbors.
  6. Join other volunteers for an hour of flyering and petitioning. To volunteer, contact Judy at bartlettjudy@gmail.com or 347-706-1824.

    Sun, June 23, 5 - 6 pm
    Tues, June 25, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
    Thur, June 27, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
The petition and neighborhood trash assessment will be part of a package that we are sending to Council Member Tish James. We will thank her for coming to the last Town Hall and for inspiring us to tackle our trash problem. We will also ask for her help in solving our trash problem.
Questions? Contact Judy at bartlettjudy@gmail.com or 347-706-1824.
- As reported awhile back, the city is installing new maps for pedestrians in several neighborhoods. Crown Heights may have been left out of the first phase of Citibikes, but we are in the pilot program for the maps.
