Hi neighbors, we are ready to begin nominating homes for the 2015 Holiday Tour of Homes. If you would like to help by recommending a home or homes on your block, please reply below with the address and we will include them. Also, if you might be available to place invitations on nominated homes in your area or on your street, please reply as well.
Many thanks, and we are looking forward to another great holiday tour on Saturday, December 5! More info to come.
Back by popular demand: the Glenwood-Brooklyn BYOB Happy Hour. Would you like to host this fun monthly event at your home? Your webmaster hosted one last year and it was much fun!
BYOB events normally happen on Sunday evenings, from 4-7pm or 5-8pm. Please respond with date(s) that work for you. You can set a maximum number of guests that you feel comfortable entertaining. Guests supply their own beverages; hosts generally provide snacks. It’s a great way to meet new neighbors and catch up on Glenwood-Brooklyn news.
Please respond at the contact page for dates and time or if you’d like to host.
