How gorgeous is our neighborhood right now? Azaleas blooming and flower gardens waking up and stretching for the sun. The crisp green scent of freshly mowed lawns. Residents of Glass Farm are working hard in small and large ways to beautify their surroundings season after season and it shows!
But it doesn’t end there.
Nearly 75 Glass Farm residents have installed Historic Glass Farm Neighborhood Pride house banners or yard signs in front of or on their homes all around the neighborhood. Along with our partners at Habitat For Humanity, volunteers spent several weekends this spring visiting, delivering and installing community-designed signs to let everyone know that we love where we live!
Our proud history and bright future together is now on display for all to see.
None of this would have been possible without the vision of Glass Farm residents who care deeply about their neighborhood and the place we call home. Thank you to Glass Farm Block leaders, Janette Richie and others, who worked with artists and members of the community to create the banners. These leaders spent time looking outward and forward for more ways for neighbors to connect to one another and remind one another that, collectively, we can work to lift each other up.
As a result, now it seems like no matter where you turn in the neighborhood, there is pride everywhere you look. These things don’t just happen. It took a lot of work and collaboration but sometimes something as simple as a sign is all you need to tell the world that we are proud to stand together as residents of Glass Farm.
Thanks to the Lilian Colby Foundation for sponsoring this project and making it a reality.
