ANNUAL GARAGE SALE:
JUNE 8th and 9th, 2013 from 8a-4p.
Saturday & Sunday.
We currently hold the LARGEST block sale in Naperville!
People come from miles around for this one. Typically we have from 12-25 homes participating. In the past, we've done a 2 or 3 day event.
This year, most indicated they would like a 1 day bash, so we're making it on a Sunday this time so anything left over can simply go to the
garbage if needed for Monday pickup.

to bring is your favorite drinks to share; the dogs are taken care of.
ANNUAL BLOCK PARTY:
SEPT 29, 2013 @ 3:00p (recently revised)
By popular demand, our annual block party is being held in our very own park again! Neighbors felt it was more convenient, less costly (no
permit required) centrally located AND more 'elbow room'.
As always, we're asking neighbors to help out by bringing something and lending a helping hand where needed. Here is a list of items which
are required for our block party:
1. Flyers (taken care of by Tina B. and Jean H.)
3. Two grills, charcoal & lighter fluid
4. Bottled & canned beverages
5. Food: hot dogs, buns, condiments, chips, desserts etc
6. Games: bag toss, horse shoes, kids toys etc
7. Photographer to take pictures for our website

out to Julian & Marsha (house #65) for allowing us to use their electrical outlet for the bouncy house last year (and hopefully this year again).
