“Hooley in the Highlands”
*Saturday, March 13th*
IHNA is switching it up a bit in order for the neighborhood to celebrate our March membership meeting together in traditional Irish fashion. Instead of our usual Wednesday night meeting, we will hold a small meeting before the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and then join in the festivities.
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Saturday, March 13, 2010
(Rain or shine)
Meet at Phoenix Hill Tavern Parking Lot – 2:00 PM
The whole neighborhood is invited to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Hooley means “party” to the Irish and that is just what we plan to do!! So…
- Wear your craziest green outfit – IHNA will furnish some beads and St. Patrick’s Day accessories. But your creativeness is appreciated
- Gather your family and friends – Wagons and strollers are fine
- Bring some wrapped candy to pass out along the route – IHNA will accept candy donations, please contact us to pick up if you are unable to attend the parade
Contact the IHNA via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions, to volunteer or to let us know you would like to donate some candy to pass out along the parade route.
The Green Triangle began formation in September of last year as a way to encourage the Ninth District to participate in sustainable activities. The idea for the name comes from the 9th District being somewhat shaped as a triangle. Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh invited neighborhood folks from Clifton, Clifton Heights, Butchertown, Irish Hill and Crescent Hill to come together and discuss their interest in green initiatives they would like to see implemented or duplicated in the Ninth District. The group met a few times in 2009 as a large group and in December, volunteers stepped up to form a “design team” to guide the process of creating a Green Triangle vision. The Design Team has been working to develop a plan to gather resident and business input about sustainability in the district, with the goal of developing a sustainability vision.
The Green Triangle Survey is designed to allow 9th District residents to communicate their perceptions, current efforts, and future desires for sustainability practices in their local area. Your opinions will help guide future sustainability efforts and initiatives near your home.
