"Join your neighbors in celebrating the fall with some apple cider and friendly cheer. For those who have come to past socials, please spread the word and bring at least one new person with you to the social this month.  This may be a spouse, a neighbor, your kid, your pet, anyone. Please spread the word amongst those who may not be on email or listserv, and we hope to see you on Wednesday!"

Southwest Petworth Lemonade Social this Wednesday

The next Southwest Petworth Lemonade Social is this Wednesday, August 26th from 6:30pm to dark at the grassy triangle at Kansas Ave and Quincy Street. There's always some tasty lemonade and people have been bringing cookies, veggies and other treats -- feel free to bring something for neighbors (or local bloggers) to enjoy!

And make sure you tell your neighbors who may not be online -- getting out to meet people and kids in a causal setting makes for a great community event.

The SWP Lemonade Social is the fourth Wednesday of every month.

An abstract artwork designed to complement a neighborhood's energy

By now you might have seen the bright Petworth mural in the alley next to Willow, Help-U-Sell and Petworth Citizen on Upshur Street.

Tom and Rob wanted to add a little artwork and color to the neighborhood that would reflect and complement the community's energy, vibrance and sense of connection. 

Both are very active residents in DC and in Petworth in particular... Read more after the break:
