Our 2023 block party will be Sat, May 6, 2023! It can't possibly be rained out again, right? We look forward to a warm sunny day and a successful block party. This year, the location will be Underhill Avenue between Park Place and Prospect Place. Watch this page and PPUABA emails for more information as the date approaches.
Our 2022 block party, originally scheduled for May 7th but rained out and rescheduled to Saturday, Oct 01, 2022, has been rained out AGAIN! We look forward to more favorable weather for our spring 2023 block party - watch this space for announcement of the date.
Our May 7th 2022 block party was rained out :-( !!!
But that didn't stop plant sale organizers Den Gordon and Robin Ketchum - who had bought 2 carloads of plants to fulfill plant pre-orders (plus have some available for on-the-spot purchases). Den and Robin, assisted by Amy Gordon, Marc Gordon, Mary Hatch and Ed Regan, set up in the cold and rain to sort, price, bag (and in several cases deliver) 15 pre-orders of plants. The plants didn't mind getting wet, but after a couple of hours in the cold rain, the volunteers were happy to get back inside, change into dry clothes and enjoy a hot drink. Below, the plant sale table, volunteers and customers braving the rain.
