Drug Free OPRF

This from the fantastic parents who are taking on the pervasive drug culture at OPRF:

Dear OPRF families,

As you know from the work of the Citizens' Council, our teens are in a position of very easy access to alcohol and drugs of all sorts. We'd like to help them stay healthy and provide them a safer environment in their schools and in their free time at the homes of their friends. With lots of ideas in the works, there is one easy way to show your support for the efforts of the Citizens' Council: If you are on Facebook, please join the Parent Action Committee's newly created organization! It is called "OPRF Drug Free Teens." To join, please send a request to shecarson@mac.com and we'll send you the link.

We launched the Facebook site on July 1st and now have over 125 members. That's a great start, and we'd like to form a web that connects many more families in our community. After you join us on Facebook, please invite all of your local Facebook friends who'd be interested in our goals. We thank you for your support and urge you to become as involved as you can in helping us and the Citizens' Council eliminate/reduce drug and alcohol use among our teens!

Looking for an apt. in the neighborhood

A close friend of mine needs to vacate her apt. in a 2-flat on Harvey. She is looking for an apt./part of a 2 or 3 flat in the area. If you have anything available in the next couple of months, please email me ASAP at: Lyoder7@juno.com

She is a fantastic tenant with great references! Thanks for keeping her in mind.

Front Porch Party

Marilyn and Shawn at 134 South Taylor have teamed up with Mike and Kim down the block to host a:

NeighborNet Front Porch Party
DATE CHANGE - Wednesday, June 16th
134 South Taylor
6:00 pm

These parties are a very laid back way to hang out with neighbors, meet some new folks, and just stay connected. Just come by and say hi.

This is close on the heels of the School's Out block party, so let's keep the momentum going and get some other blocks volunteering to host a front porch bash as well! Super simple to do and good for the neighborhood!
