Our fall festival brought out the neighborhood

There were parents, kids, food, beer from our longtime corporate friend Monnik Beer Co. and entertainment by Squallis Puppeters and Squeeze-bot. A highlight was the formal unveiling of our new steps featuring District 8 Metro Councilwoman Cassie Chambers Armstrong, who arranged for the $10,000 Neighborhood Development Grant to pay for them.

Save the date: Our park festival is coming this fall!

Come see the puppets!

This year’s Beechwood Park Festival will be held Saturday, Sept. 24, from 2 to 6 p.m. We’ll have music from Squeeze-bot; beer from Monnik Beer Co.; entertainment by Squallis Puppeteers; a hot dog cart, and more.

And we’re planning a ribbon-cutting for our just-completed new steps, made possible by a $10,000 Neighborhood Development grant from District 8 Metro Councilwoman Cassie Chambers Armstrong.
