We’ll have free burgers and hot dogs, donated by Magro’s Meat and Produce, as well as a snack cart provided by neighbor Shannan Karrick, stocked full of popcorn, snow cones, drinks, and other hand-crafted delights. Donations accepted.
EPNIA will once again host Neighborhood Night Out on behalf of the north end neighborhood associations, and this year’s event will be held on Tuesday, August 6, from 5-7 p.m. in Enos Park. There will be a picnic dinner provided by MJ’s Fish and Chicken, kids’ activities, and informational tables from many local organizations.
Here are just a few of the highlights:
The Northside Community Children’s Library will have a table with free books and a dunk tank fundraiser. A dollar gets you three balls to try and dunk a Springfield Jaycee’s volunteer.
Springfield Police Department will hold a K-9 demonstration and Springfield Fire Department will have a fire truck on hand.
John’s Children’s Hospital will have activities for kids.
Memorial Medical Center will have information from the Comprehensive Stroke Team, Memorial Behavioral Children’s Center/MOSIAC, and the Weight Loss and Wellness Center & Healthy Families.
SIU will have representatives from the Access to Care Collaborative.
Meet Curtis Morris, the newest Habitat for Humanity homeowner who will be moving into a newly renovated Habitat house in Enos Park.
Representatives from the FBI Springfield Citizen’s Academy and Citizen’s Police Academy will be on hand to answer questions about their programs.
And much more!
There will NOT be a neighborhood meeting in August, due to National Night Out. We will resume our regular schedule of potlucks and meetings the second Tuesday of each month on Tuesday, Sept. 10.
Springfield will have a Winter Farmers Market for a second year, and Enos Park is excited to once again be hosting this community-wide event. On the fourth Saturday of each month from January-April, a variety of local vendors will be gathering at Third Presbyterian Church to sell produce, meats, jams and honey, baked goods, and craft items.
Those using LINK cards will have the opportunity to purchase tokens to double their funds. We hope you’ll be sure to come out and support this wonderful community program.
