A Summer Full of Activities
Although some of these photographs are of events that happened at various points in the summer, they haven’t been posted here yet. As they show, ONSL was alive with activity throughout the summer.

Above: A crowd gathers around Professor Tim Baumann of Missouri Valley College in front of Sts. Cyril & Methodius Polish National Catholic Church at 11th and Chambers. The Missouri Historical Society-sponsored tour of ONSL on Sept. 9 visited Sts. Cyril & Methodius, the home of John & Janie Burse, the North Market Place display house, and the Community History Museum in the ONSLRG office.

Above: On Sept. 8, the last Outdoor Movie Night of the season featured Akeelah & the Bee, with a pre-movie cartoon courtesy of Michael Allen & Claire Nowak-Boyd.

Above: On August 13 a diverse gathering of poetry fans and ONSL residents came out to the back yard of the North Market Place display home to celebrate poetry and to enjoy the flavors of ice cream sundaes from Crown Candy. The event featured poems by ONSL resident Bruce Smith and Jane Ellen Ibur and K. Curtis Lyle.

Above: The climactic scene of the film Flute Master IV: Spirit of Doom was shot on-location along the 14th Street Mall the weekend of June 10. The film was an entry in the 48 Hour Film Project and won an award for best costume design.
