Mid April Update

We’ve held lots of great events over the last month and a half. As we work to get the new website up and running, here’s a shortened review of some of the great things residents, volunteers, and stakeholders have helped us achieve!

3 Garden Workshops for seniors — We’ve held some great workshops at the Fresh Starts Community Garden even though the weather hasn’t cooperated as much as we had hoped.

1 Crime Prevention Summit — Over 80 people attended an engaging summit including Mayor Krewson, Chief of Police Hayden, Circuit Attorney Gardner, and elected officials.

4 Beautification and clean ups — Since mid-March, residents and volunteers have joined us to clean up parts of the Ville, JVL, Penrose, O’Fallon, St. Louis Place, and Old North St. Louis.

We’ve also had the pleasure of partnering with neighborhood associations to present on our upcoming home repair programs, future beautification and clean ups, and other programs! If you would like for us to present information about what we do to a group of your neighbors, please give us a call at (314) 385-4343 or email us at northnewsteadassociationstl@gmail.com!
