Thursday: Lovejoy Fundraiser

By Kristen Laise, 1248 E St. NE

We (Jim and Kristen Laise) are recent subscribers of the Corner Forum and have appreciated the newsletter and what we have been learning about our neighbors and neighborhood. Thank you!

Thought I'd follow up with your request for information about the Lovejoy Lofts and potential park project. I am not at all involved with the project, but did just read a report about it in the January issue of Voice of the Hill (bottom right corner of page 36).

Maybe you saw it too, or have since learned the details, but to summarize: The condo developers have agreed to donate $20,000 in labor and supplies toward creating a park, and the community needs to raise an additional $10,000. Sharon Ambrose has begun the fund-raising with a $1,000 donation from her constituent fund.

On Thursday, January 16, from 7 to 9:30 p.m., there will be a kick-off fundraising party hosted by Tony Hardy and Sean Conley at 1021 E St. NE. They will have food and live jazz, and they will be collecting ideas and donations for the park. To RSVP, call ANC 6A05 Commissioner Michael Musante, at 548-2542.

Unfortunately, Jim and I have another meeting that night, so we won't be able to attend, but I hope other neighbors will.

Hope this helps. §
