Found out this evening that there have been at least fourteen different women who’ve attended the Wednesday afternoon knitting gathering begun just a few weeks back. Just yesterday there were eleven all cozied up in the back room at Pleasant Street knitting and yakking up a storm. Would seem Deb’s hit onto something. Mark your calendar for Wednesdays 4:00 and come on out.
Thanks to PaulD a neighbor in the association for telling us about “sleigh shovels”. I’d never heard of such a thing. He then took it a step further finding that if six of us went in together for this quantity we could get a volume discount. One thing leading to another and I’m now the proud owner of a Sleigh Shovel.
Once again we got hit with nasty weather the evening of our meeting. All the same over twentyfolks braved the snow and cold including a half dozen new faces which is particularly gratifying. Things continue to come together for us.
Sorry, can’t help myself. LOST begins again in another week-n-three days, eight hours.
Wed. 1/21, 7:00 central.
Don’t call. I’ll not be answering the phone.
I now return you to the regularly scheduled Beloit NPA type stuff.
They had a great turn out. By the time I showed up late for the men’s auxilery to grab a pic several of the women had already left for the evening. DebD, MargaretB, Wanda, MagdaV, PeggyL, MargeF, CarolS and AnaK all showed, shared and evidently had a grand time. I understand they’ll be meeting again the same time next week, 4:00, 1/14, Pleasant Street Coffeehouse.
Not sure how this applies to ‘neighborhood preservation’ other then the building of ‘community’ often hinges on folks coming together socially simply to enjoy shared interests. Who knew it would be knitting?
It would seem that some latent, smouldering passion for knitting has lain pent up just under the surface among many of our friends and neighbors simply awaiting the subject being broached. Now released it’s gone viral. I understand there are over a dozen now who’ve expressed an interest in getting together to… well, knit.
So come on out and join DebD and the rest at Pleasant Street Coffeehouse next Wednesday 1/7 at 4:00.
If you don’t get the paper…
a nice little piece on some neighbors and friends, the Forbecks.
Just heard from a friend over at GPA about their having just received the Trustees Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The video above and a quick one-pager below outlines some of the issues this neighborhood was dealing with, what they did and some of the positive outcomes. It’s do-able. I’d asked if my friend or someone from GPA might be willing to come up and talk to our group.
BTW, it you’d like to see other video produced by the National Trust for Historic Preservation they’ve got a YouTube channel here.
