Neighborhood Notes – 1/29/14

Food Initiatives Survey

Neighbors and Friends,

I know there are a lot of you out there who are interested in all of the food projects that are going on around our neighborhood.  We are too!  Your neighbors over at I-AD and the Boner Center have put together a short (like 6 questions!) survey about food projects in the Near Eastside and we’d like your input.  Would you please take 5 minutes and fill out this survey?  Once we have responses through email, in-person surveying, and some mailed out surveys we will get the word out about what we’re doing next.

As always, if you’d like to get involved in a project related to food, our Quality of Life Plan, and/or one of your neighborhood organizations, please let me know and I can get you connected.  317-808-2336 or mfetter@jhbcc.org

Thanks!

Megan

Arsenal Tech Athletics

Did you know???

The boys basketball City tournament championship showdown scheduled for tonight between Class 4A top-ranked Tech and No. 4 Cathedral has been postponed to Thursday night.

Tech athletic director Victor Bush said inclement weather forced the decision. The junior varsity championship between Scecina and Bishop Chatard will be played at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Tech, followed by the Tech-Cathedral game.

Tech (16-1) is looking for its first City title since the 1990-91 season, while Cathedral (10-3) is going for its third consecutive title and seventh in nine years.

Tech defeated Cathedral 68-38 on Dec. 13.
