 Spring arrives in Union Square! FINALLY!
Easter Egg Hunt in Union Square Saturday, April 12th!

After a winter with record-breaking storms, buds are beginning to appear in the park and throughout the neighborhood!

So, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 12th! Here’s the schedule for the Union Square Easter Egg Hunt: at 9:00 AM, you are invited and encouraged to come to the park to help clean up the litter, etc.; at 9:30 AM, please bring a dozen eggs to hide; and at 10:00 AM, the festivities begin!

Your children, grandchildren, and friends are welcome. Please contact Erika Brockman with the names of children attending and the number of adults who will join them. We want to make sure the Easter Bunny leaves enough goodies for everyone!

Tag Sale in the Park
Saturday, May 3rd!


SoWeBo Arts, Inc. is planning a neighborhood-wide tag sale to take place on Saturday, May 3rd – so mark your calendars! Proceeds from this event will be used to pay for children’s activities at the SoWeBohemian Arts Festival.

The tag sale will run from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM on May 3rd, and Early Birds will get the best spots in the park. Cost for a table is $10 (to defray advertising and permit costs) and all the money you make is, of course, yours to keep. Everyone in the neighborhood is welcome to participate! If you are interested, please contact Erika Brockman immediately. Register as soon as possible so plans and promotions can proceed.

In addition (if there is enough interest), there may be a breakfast in the park that day – perhaps coffee, juice, donuts and bagels. It all depends on your response!

 $3,000 towards purchase of your New Home!
It’s the 2003 “Buying into Baltimore” Home-Buying Fair and Neighborhood Tours. The event features $3,000 grants to the first 50 participants who close on a house in the western region within 90 days of the event.

The picture shows soon-to-be-homeowners lining up early to get into the doors at last year’s event! The Buying Into Baltimore Fairs of 2002 were the most successful events yet. There were over 1,400 participants who joined in, spoke with exhibitors, toured neighborhoods, and viewed homes for sale.
