It (finally) feels like Spring in Peoria! We’re celebrating by spending the day outside collecting materials for our seed pod making party this afternoon. Together with a local after school program, we’ll be getting our hands dirty and celebrating Earth Day by making portable seed pods (sometimes called seed balls or seed bombs) for easy, effortless gardening.  Here’s a great guide to making your own seed pods. It’s easy and fun!

Taking Back Our Neighborhood Celebration Dinner

 

 

On Monday, April 15th at 5:30 pm the Take Back Our Neighborhood team will be hosting a celebratory spaghetti dinner at Bernard Hall (512 E Kansas).  There will be a few people there to speak about what is happening in the neighborhood, how far we have come, and where we are going.  All East Bluff residents are invited.  There will be Avanti’s spaghetti and bread, dessert, and refreshments served.  There will be coloring pages and other activities for the children to keep them entertained.  And we will close the night with a raffle!

No need to RSVP…just come on over at 5:30 on Monday. We hope to see you there!
