Parsons Avenue Merchants Association Monument Moving

The current Parsons Avenue Merchants Association monument is located on the east side of Parsons on the north side of the Children's Hospital Parking garage just south of Livingston Avenue.

Due to Children's plans to erect a new structure in the area, the monument will be removed and stored pending relocation to the west side of Parsons Avenue on property where the new Village Pointe building is located.

The Neighborhood Design Center has been tasked with creating a new design for the monument that re-uses some of the existing materials and is appropriate to the new site. A model of the site has been created and students will be creating samples to show what might be built. The Parsons Avenue Merchants Association will oversee the design selection with input.

It is anticipated that the new monument will be available in Spring 2015.

Wine Tasting Fundraiser Recap

A very successful wine tasting event was held to benefit the Schumacher Place Civic Association (SPCA) on August 2.
Lynn Stowe was the perfect hostess - the weather was a perfect evening for a wine tasting allowing folks to socialize with neighbors and friends as well as raise funds for SPCA.
There were plenty of food items donated by neighbors and friend.
Bill Chappel presented the program of wines which were provided courtesy of William Robbins/ Gledhill Robbins & Talis Group of HER Realtors.
This was a sold out event raising $670 for the association.
Many thanks to Lisa, Bill, Lynn and Bill and to all who attended and made the event so successful!
