Yard Sale Held May 17

The Summit Neighborhood Association’s annual yard sale was held on May 17, the  rain date. The sun came out before the  9:00 start and with organaizer Connie Chesbrough’s experience and the hard work of many volunteers, another successful Summit Neighborhood Association yard sale was held. As usual, there was a mad rush as the gate was opened at the 9:00 post time. Offers were made and accepted, and many treasures were discovered and carted away.

This year’s yard sale profits will go to Save the Henry Bowen Anthony Fountain in Lippitt Park.

Meet Your Neighbors at a Wine Tasting

The SNA events committee invites you to join us at Pizzico on Hope Street for a wine tasting event on Tuesday, March 25th at 6pm.  We will be tasting unique wines from Italy paired with fabulous food.  Sample new and exciting varietals while meeting your Summit Neighbors.
The event cost is $20 per person.  Please RSVP by March 20 to events@sna.providence.ri.us.

We look forward to seeing you there!

This is the Summit Neighborhood Association’s Events Committee’s first event to further SNA’s initiative to build social capital. This idea to build connections among neighbors was introduced at the February 25 Annual Meeting.

Here’s an extra challenge from the SNA: print this announcement out and put it through the mailslot of a Summit Neighbor you don’t know. Let them know you are inviting them and hope to see them there!

Providence Tomorrow on SNA Agenda for Oct.5

Summit Neighborhood Association’s next Board meeting will be held on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 7PM in the Rochambeau Branch Library. The public is always invited to our meetings.

Our agenda will include preparation for the important task of planning for the future of Summit and the entire city of Providence through the City’s upcoming Providence Tomorrow programs. (See Picture a Better Providence below.) We have learned that the first series of citywide “charrettes” will take place during the week of Oct. 11 through 14., but times and places are yet to be set. Area plans for clusters of 3 or 4 neighborhoods are supposed to follow early next year. Planner Bonnie Nickerson has been invited to bring us up to date on that process on Oct.5.

Also sure to be discussed: final plans for our election-eve Candidates Forum (to be scheduled for the last week of October), updates  on  our North Main Streeet development efforts,  Hillside Health Center and sidewalks.

If you would like to present or suggest an issue for our agenda, please contact me – Jon Howard 331-2272. (more…)
