Griffin Avenue Neighborhood Annual Picnic

The Griffin Avenue neighborhood including Newport Ave., Pollard Park, Idlewood Lane and adjacent streets held its annual picnic on Sunday, September 11th at the home of Llew & Janet Smith. Organized by Janet and City Councilwoman Barbara Ramsey, it has proven successful in fostering better relationships between long-term and student residents and in creating a more cohesive neighborhood. All welcomed the opportunity to get to know one another and to share a meal (students particularly appreciate the leftovers!). Neighborhood picnics are encouraged and supported by the City as a way of promoting better town/gown relations; contact Carolyn Murphy at 757-220-6130 for information.
