5Ks and PI Days and Bears! Oh my!

All right, you’ve got me. There aren’t actually any bears. But there ARE 5Ks and PI Days!  There is a little something for everyone in this week’s edition of the Near Eastside Notes.  You’ll find activities that are just for the grown-ups, and some fun (and hilarious!) family friendly events as well.

If you’ve got an announcement or event that our neighbors should hear about, be sure to send those in to CoraLyn Turentine by emailing cturentine@jhbcc.org or calling 317.808.2336.  And don’t keep the good news you find here to yourself; share it with your neighbors and encourage them to join in the fun!

Happy Reading!

TOMORROW: NESCO’S 7TH ANNUAL PI DAY

NOW AT THE LEGACY CENTER

pie

The only thing better than a neighborhood party is a neighborhood pie contest!  Apple, cherry, key lime, pumpkin, sweet potato, lemon meringue, banana cream, razzleberry…hungry yet?

You can whip out your BEST secret pie recipe and enter it to win a glamorous prize pack on Saturday March 14th at 11:00 am right here at the LEGACY CENTER.  And let me tell you, this pie contest is serious business. You and your home-made pie have the chance to be named on the new NESCO PI Day plaque displayed at Pogue’s Run Grocer (can we say ‘bragging rights’!).  You’ll also win an incredible gift basket of kitchen gadgets from ZESCO.COM!

Now some of you are pie-makers, but let’s be honest…most of us are probably pie EATERS! If you can’t get enough of some delicious homemade pie, then you need to make sure you’re the highest bidder at the Pie Auction.  You read that right! Contestants will be submitting 2 pies: one for the pie contest and one for the auction.

For contest entry information, visit our event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1540219986254336.



April 30 Neighborhood Summit

Thursday April 30, 2015, 6:30 pm

Westminster Neighborhood Ministries

2325 E. New York St., Indianapolis

How do you define “quality of life” for our community? Maybe it’s having litter-free streets and well-lit neighborhoods. Maybe it’s having strong locally-owned businesses, and a high employment rate.

Here’s the deal, for more than 40 years, Near Eastside neighbors have held onto the strong philosophy that ordinary residents can mobilize extraordinary growth and prosperity in their communities. Most recently, these efforts have been propelled forward by the Near Eastside Quality of Life Plan (for which John H. Boner Community Center is the convening agency), an intensive, neighborhood-driven strategy for building the Near Eastside into a community that our residents can be proud of.

About 4 times per year, neighbors are encouraged to come out to the Neighborhood Summits to provide input and inspiration for this plan, as well as to network with one another, and to provide progress reports on current initiatives.

So whether or not you’ve ever participated in a neighborhood event before, whether you feel very confident and competent in driving neighborhood initiatives or feel a bit like a fish out of water, we welcome and encourage you come out and add your voice.

Groups wishing to reserve two to three minutes to provide an update, make note of a community challenge, or to celebrate an accomplishment can send in their agenda items to CoraLyn Turentine, Director of Neighborhood Engagement for the John H. Boner Community Center, at cturentine@jhbcc.org or by calling 317.808.2336



COLOR THE WORLD WITH LOVE: MURAL PROJECT

mural

Want to make a lasting impact? Be a part of the “Color the World with Love” mural project.  Andrew Severns and Lisa Boyles are teaming up again to bring beauty to the concrete walls on the Near Eastside. This April, join them in painting a mural on the 9th Street underpass near Sherman Drive.

If you want to get plugged in and painting isn’t for you, mark your calendars for Pitch Feast! On March 30th at 6:30 pm head on over to the Speak Easy and enjoy delectable treats while listening to social entrepreneurs across the city present compete for funds to support their projects.  Cast your vote for “Color the World with Love” and help them win funding that will equip them to sponsor neighborhood youth groups in painting the mural on the 9th Street underpass.  The Speak Easy is located at 5255 Winthrop Ave just south of Broad Ripple.

For more information or to reserve your spot on the painting team, contact Lisa at (317) 372 – 6983 or muralsindy @gmail.com.  You can also visit http://www.colortheworldwithlove.com

ORDINARY NEIGHBORS ARE SHAPING

REDEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Monday March 16, 6-8pm

East Tenth United Methodist Church

2327 E. 10th St.

If you use Mass Ave or Brookside to travel back and forth between the Near Eastside and downtown, then you know what an odd strip it seems to be. Warehouses, industrial spaces, and that big blue building all draw our curiosity, but what goes on in those buildings and how can they positively impact life here on the Near Eastside?  Join Near East Area Renewal (NEAR) and East Tenth Street Civic Association as they host a meeting to share ideas and gain feedback from neighbors on redevelopment initiatives being facilitated by Riley Area Development Corporation (RADC) with funding from Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC).

If you can’t attend this meeting, don’t worry! Additional meetings are scheduled for April 8 and May 13 at Spades Park Library.



CALLING ALL FOODIES! NEAR EASTSIDE FOOD SUMMIT IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!

Saturday March 21, 11-2pm

Westminster Neighborhood Ministries Center

2325 E. New York St.

Whether you’re eating it, growing it, analyzing it, or selling it, food is a REALLY BIG part of all of our lives. How can we identify, learn about, and link together the many Near Eastside food initiatives so that our neighbors can get involved and benefit? This question sits at the center of the Near Eastside Food Summit.

If you:

a) are a foodie

b) eat food

c) are interested in locally grown food

d) facilitate a community garden

e) work on food access issues

6) work on nutrition challenges

7) work with other food challenges and opportunities on the Near Eastside

8) would like to learn more about any of these topics

this summit is for you!

Something big is coming up, and it’s not more snow!

Brrr! I thought the weather was only supposed to be frightful before Christmas.

All of this snow might be bringing you down, but fret not!  Our neighbors are coming together to bring you great opportunities to have fun, make memories, and get more connected on the Near-Eastside.

If you’ve got an announcement or event that our neighbors should hear about, be sure to send those in to CoraLyn Turentine by emailing cturentine@jhbcc.org or calling 317.808.2336.  And don’t keep the good news you find here to yourself; share it with your neighbors and encourage them to join in the fun!

Hosted by NESCO in partnership with East 10th Street Civic Association, the theme for this congress is “Bring on the Biz.” Not only will this be a great time to connect with neighbors across the Near-Eastside, but it will also give you the chance to get the inside scoop on Near-Eastside business initiatives.  You’ll get to hear from our great local business owners and redevelopment leaders, and share your input on how we should continue moving forward as a community.

We’re keeping it pitch-in style so bring your favorite breakfast item, and we’ll see you there!

You DON’T Want to Miss These Awesome Opportunities!

Near Eastside Neighbors & Friends –

I may be a little biased, but I happen to think that the Near-Eastside is home to some of the most talented, most passionate, and most invested community members in the city. Not to toot our own horn, but look at how much we are willing to pour into making this a great community to live, work, and play in! For the past several decades, we’ve made an intentional effort to band together for the greater good, and those efforts are paying off.  There are numerous upcoming opportunities for our neighborhood youth and adults to gain scholarships to further their education, build new skills in crime prevention and community building, gain meaningful work experience, and even win cash prizes!  Yes, you read that correctly!

Someone is going to take advantage of these opportunities and reap the benefits…it might as well be the Near Eastside! So check out these upcoming opportunities for our neighbors to grow and shine! By the way, if your neighborhood group or organization has an upcoming event that our fellow Near-East-siders should know about, make sure to send details to me at cturentine@jhbcc.org to be included in upcoming posts and announcements!

These aren’t all of the great things going on in and around our neighborhood.  Make sure to check out the NESCO website http://nescocommunity.org for more info and a neighborhood calendar (which you can post to as well!).  You can also check out the NESCO Facebook page at http://facebook.com/nescoindy

Thanks!

Transformational Projects for Your Neighborhood!

A request for proposals
2012-13

Public Allies Indianapolis, a signature AmeriCorps program administered by the Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center, is looking for neighborhood based projects in Indianapolis neighborhoods that its members (called Public Allies) can help create, implement, and evaluate over an eight month period. The types of projects of interest are those that seek to strengthen a neighborhood by accessing the assets in the neighborhood and build on those assets to increase the neighborhood’s quality of life in some way. In exchange these projects would allow Public Allies to practice the skills that they bring, or that they have newly acquired while in the Public Ally program. Also, the projects provide an opportunity for the Public Allies to experience working with people different from them in a team environment to fulfill a common goal.

If you would like more information or to submit a proposal by October 15, 2012, please see the announcement located here.
