Pasadena Party a Success
C    ongratulations to the Pasadena Avenue neighbors
     who recently organized a Block Party get together
that was a tremendous success. Three homes pooled their
efforts and resources to organize the event, which was at-
tended by neighbors from more than two thirds of the
homes on Pasadena. Some people signed up to become
part of the Block Watch efforts and email distributions;
everyone enjoyed cool drinks and Sangria, with wonderful
appetizers. Those who already knew each other met newer
neighbors who welcomed a chance to meet everyone. The
Pasadena neighbors want to do another party and encour-
age neighbors on other blocks to plan a party of their own.
