Wednesday, February 6, 2013
Our 2013 calendars are still relatively new, but the event schedule is filling up fast. Please celebrate the vitality of Old North by joining us at all (or as many as you can) of the following:
On Monday, February 18 at 6 p.m., Old North Saint Louis Restoration Group will hold the 2013 edition of our Annual Meeting & Pot-Luck Supper. This occasion has become a winter tradition for many neighbors and provides a wonderful opportunity to share a meal with a good mix of long-time residents and recent arrivals. In addition to hearing about highlights from 2012 and learning about our plans for 2013, members will vote on the four positions on ONSLRG’s board (with terms running from 2013 until 2015) that are up for election this year. Click HERE for information on the benefits of ONSLRG’s membership and how you can join.
In the meantime, we’d love to see you at a couple of other events:
Throughout the month of February - stop by ONSLRG’s gallery at 2700 N. 14th Street to take a look at the exhibit of the 14 Sustainable Land Lab competition proposals currently being considered for implementation on 4 lots in the Crown Square area. Details about the proposals, from the materials submitted for the first round of the competition can be found by clicking HERE. The boards on display at the ONSLRG Gallery provide more detail and other updates. Comment forms are available at the gallery so that you can let us know which concepts you find most appealing.
The gallery is open during regular business hours (9-5, Monday-Friday) and occasionally for limited hours over the weekend or on weeknight evenings. Call the ONSLRG office at 314-241-5031 to check on after-hours options — or check back here for further announcements.
THIS Sunday, February 10, is the second annual Run for the Chocolate! This pre-Valentines 5k run is a fun opportunity to show off the beauty and charm of Old North to up to a thousand visitors who will be running through the community. Because the route involves running in the streets, several intersections will be closed off during the race, which also means there is a great need for volunteers to help direct traffic, hand out water (and chocolate!) to runners, and various other tasks. Please contact the ONSLRG office at 314-241-5031 or by email at info@ONSL.org if you can help — and we’ll put you in touch with the race organizers.
Hundreds of runners braved bitterly cold weather last year; this year's warmer temperatures should attract a much larger crowd.
