Join us next Tuesday, March 19, 2019 ~ 5:30-7:30pm
Hope Church, 1215 Gallatin Ave. (McKennie and Gallatin)  

From Gallatin to Porter, up past Greenwood and Carter and down through Eastland: we share a big and beautiful neighborhood.
Who made that magnificently-lit Blue Angel on Pontotoc? And what's the story of that school-locker-turned-Little-Free-Library next to Rosepepper?
Let's get together to hear (and share) our experiences of Eastwood, old and new.
Curious about the inside of that historic church at Gallatin and McKennie? It's an intricate and welcoming space inside, and Eastland Baptist Church (now Hope Church) is opening their doors to our neighborhood for this evening.
There is plenty of parking around back (or perhaps, walk or bike to it!). Bring a neighbor; bring a friend; bring a family member!

5:30-6pm: Small bites with tea/coffee pick-me-ups (childcare available)
6-7:30pm: We will share stories through guided prompts and facilitation by our neighbor, Stephanie Sullivan.
