Inwood Summer Festival - Sun 7/14 - 10am-2pm
The Fall Harvest Festival proved to be a hit, so there will be a summer festival! I am excited to kick this off and bring the residents, community, and businesses together to celebrate the summer. We can still use volunteers - this is free event that is completely volunteer-run! If you are part of a neighborhood organization and would like to network with the community, please contact me.
Activities include: games, arts & crafts, kids road rally, plant tours, music circle, storytime, knitting circle, facepainting, and much more! At 11am, FDNY will bring a firetruck and their Mobile Fire Safety Education.

We need additional volunteers to help plan and organize new, exciting activities for the neighborhood in the coming year. We need people to:
If you have visited the Indian Road Playground, played with your children there and socialized with other parents/families, then you are already a ‘member’. The FIRP will provide funds for the replacement of sand for the sand box in coming years, as we have done since the group’s inception in 1993. But we need your help raising funds for the sand and to pay for additional playground events, such as the opening festivities.
