BPNA block party this Friday!

The annual BPNA summer block party is this Friday, August 14, 6-9 pm. Everybody in the neighborhood is invited. Come meet new neighbors and celebrate with old friends.

Craig Brenner and Friends will once again inspire dancing in the street—specifically the 1000 block of South Dunn St. Please bring a potluck dish to share with your neighbors. BPNA will provide lemonade, grilled meat and veggie burgers and hot dogs generously provided by our sponsor, Nick’s English Hut. As an added treat, we will provide Edy's slow-churned ice cream for the first 100 guests, courtesy of Edy's.

We are also grateful to the City of Bloomington, which awarded us a Small & Simple grant to help with the non-food costs of this large party. The party drew about 300 people last year, and we expect an even bigger turnout this year.

This is a great time to pay your membership dues. Dues are just $5 a year, and we will have a table set up to take dues at the picnic. BPNA T-shirts are back by popular demand! We will have a custom design ready for pre-order.

Last but not least, remember the hungry while you enjoy the party. Dee Hupp-Sanders of the Hoosier Hills Food Bank asks that you bring a food item to donate to the food bank.
