The thirteen parties held in 2016 far exceeded the previous record of eight in 2015. Between Jane Lane’s first (of two) on June 26 and the wind-up on Devri on October 2 for Aldean, Dell, Devri, Marcelyn, and Marjorie neighbors, parties were held, almost one each weekend, on Mardell, Benjamin, Lassen, Hamilton, Thompson Court, Thompson Square, Anna, the 2300 block of Laura, and the 2400 and 2500 blocks of Alvin.

The organizers reported that both newcomers and long-timers appreciated the chance to get together, and everyone is looking forward to a repeat in 2017. This year’s parties were made safer by the orange traffic cones and Road Closed signs loaned out by CERT’s John Thomas.
