The efforts to restore and update the Gladys McCoy Memorial Garden continue with generous support from the NIKE Athlete volunteers, John Barker and others. The Athletes energetically maintain the garden with trash removal and leaf raking and debris removal on a regular basis. (We congratulate them on the reopening of their store, which was closed by the pandemic and vandalized after the murder of George Floyd.)
Feed the Masses is a non-profit organization that has been preparing thousands of free meals to those in need since 2015. Before Covid, they also offered affordable cooking classes to adults and kids but had to pivot when the pandemic hit.
Each October at our General Assembly Meeting we elect the new Eliot Neighborhood Association Board Directors. This year we have two new members that were not on our board last year.
