Yeah, we know that we haven't posted a lot lately. But Jeff R. and I have been concentrating a lot of time and effort on some pretty exciting projects.
Along with Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation President Greg Huth, we're coordinating bicycle tours of Old Brooklyn and Brooklyn Centre as part of OBCDC's All-Access Home & Bicycle Tour event to be held July 18, 2009. So in addition to trying to return to bicycling form from Summer 2008 when I rode over 600 miles, I've been speaking with friends and exploring on my own to develop routes that offer the best possible representations of our neighborhoods to those that may not have be enlightened to them. In the end, we'll have a multitude of tours - a trolley tour, walking tours, leisurely bicycle routes for families, and a 15- to 20-mile ride for more experienced cyclists that I'll be leading. Of course, there will be much, much more. So for more information, please visit OBCDC's website. Please mark your calendars and help spread the word!
We've also investigated ways in which we can better do our part in marketing Old Brooklyn's living opportunities, local businesses, and overall amenities to both outsiders and fellow residents, and have taken steps in doing so. That's about all that we can say for now, but please stay tuned for more in the future.
If you'd like to contribute content to Old Brooklyn Blogs, such as a feature on a neighborhood business or recap of an event, please drop us a line and we'll see if we can make something work.
Lastly, RiverSweep is happening tomorrow. Folks who wish to help clean up Treadway Creek and the Lower Big Creek Valley can meet at Zeleznik's Tavern at Harvard & Jennings Roads beginning at 9am, and clean-up efforts will last until approximately noon. A gathering of volunteers is scheduled to take place from noon until 2pm at the Plain Dealer Pavilion. For more information, please click here. Hope you can lend a hand!
