Carpenter Green Backyard BBQ and SOSNA Neighborhood Quizzo

Friends & Neighbors, 
Have you been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to get into Carpenter Green Park and check it out? Now is your chance! Bring your neighbors, friends, kids, family, dog, barista, bartender, whoever to our backyard BBQ on June 18th! We'll be serving up burgers, hotdogs (including veggie) and beer to celebrate summertime and the end of the school year. Check out the soon-to-be park, grab a bite and get in on some lawn games. We'll have the sprinkler going for the kiddies as well as bocce, badminton, corn hole and more. Make a day of it and bring a picnic blanket for some quality lounge time. Donations for beverages are greatly appreciated, and all proceeds will go towards Phase 2 and the completion of the park. For more information and to learn how you can help, check out our Giving Grid.
We have a lot of exciting neighborhood events coming up in the month of June, including everyone's favorite game- quizzo! We'll be at Founding Father's Sports Bar on June 7th for a SWCC themed game of quizzo, hosted by our Board Chair, the always entertaining Lauren Vidas! Join the fun at 6pm sharp to play. Founding Fathers will be running $1 off specials on select drafts and prizes will be awarded to winning teams!

Paul Weinstein, uses original Nintendo Game Boys, often accompanied by bass, guitar and/or other lo-fi sequencers, to create complex audio masterpieces. His multifaceted but catchy compositions combine the nostalgic game sounds of his childhood with modern music influences.
