Old Village May Day Block Party And Market! May 3rd

Mark your calendar for the Old Village May Day Block Party & Market!  

WHO?  Everyone is invited to this fun filled event!  Please help spread the word.

WHAT?  A celebration of local community, business owners, musicians and artists.  Event will feature activities, food, beer & wine, raffles, games, and more!

WHERE?  We will be closing off Hibben Street from Coleman Blvd. down to Whilden Street.

WHY? To showcase the people and things that make the Old Village so special!   As you know, in 2009 our economy was struggling, so the First OV May Day Block Party was created to help business owners gather, get creative, and network in new ways.  The event was a huge success and provided an opportunity to find valuable resources right in our own back yard.  And it is time to do it again!

WHEN?  May 3rd from 2pm-5pm.

MORE INFO TO COME, SO PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD.  If you know of an OV business, artist, musician, etc, who would like to participate, please have them contact me ASAP.  Jackie@TheCassinaGroup.  I am thrilled to be involved in this event, it is going to be great!  Brought to you by Jackie Kelly,  your Village Connection along with The Cassina Group.

Pitt Street Fitness

Yes, yes, yes, I thank you Pitt Street Fitness for getting me back in the game! After some time off, I have decided to give my work out a fresh start by joining Pitt Street Fitness! Small, yet quaint, there are many things to love about this place! The facility has any piece of equipment you may need and is open 24 hours. Locally owned and operated, Robert Short is on hand to get you started and ready to roll. If you do not know Robert, well let me just say that he is a pretty big guy, so when he puts you on a schedule (and it is not easy) you just do as you are told! 🙂 Centrally located in the heart of the Old Village, Pitt St. Fitness is the perfect spot to get away from it all and enjoy a good work out.

Pitt street Fitness is cool. Check out their Facebook page here
