First Up: Good in the Hood
On Saturday, June 23, the Rebuilding Center rocked the float while participating in the annual Good in the Hood parade! The parade started at the intersection of N Williams Ave & N Russell St and ended at King School Park. Renowned musical magician and RBC neighbor, Ural Thomas, and his band kept the party going on the float for five hours with fun tunes and ad-libbed ones, in the Ural tradition. What a fun celebration and historic community tradition!
Next: Mississippi Street Fair
The 2018 Mississippi Street Fair will be held Saturday, July 14th from 10am-9pm. Come out to celebrate the breadth and diversity of North Mississippi Avenue, and the individuals that make up this community. Spend a summer day checking out music, art, and food from local vendors, and learn more about the various businesses and nonprofits on or near Mississippi Ave. The Rebuilding Center will have an informational booth and games at the fair, as well as a special summer sale at our store with discounts you won’t want to miss. We’ll see you there!
Annual Ice Cream Social
Mark your calendars to cool off on North Mississippi Avenue: an ice cream social will be taking place August 30 at the Rebuilding Center and other businesses along the avenue! Make sure to stop by for a tasty summer treat, and to spend some quality time socializing with Rebuilding Center volunteers and staff. Additionally, if you have a furry friend, stay tuned for the doggie ice cream in the works.
