Plenty Of Things Going On In The Neighborhood This Weekend.

The upcoming Easter weekend is full of things to do in Browne's Addition. The weekend starts off with a neighborhood Spaghetti Dinner on Friday evening from 5-6:30pm at All Saints Lutheran Church (314 S. Spruce). The dinner is being put on by the Browne's Addition Neighborhood Council. It is free, but there is a suggested donation of $5 to cover costs.

Then on Saturday we are having our yearly Neighborhood Yard Sale. There are a lot of interesting things to be found for sale by our residents; you don't want to miss it. If we're lucky the recent Winter-ish weather will be behind us and Spring will make an appearance. The yard sales generally run from 8am-3pm, but residents may set different hours. Tables can also be available for use in the parking lot of All Saints Lutheran Church.

An Easter Egg Hunt will take place in Coeur d'Alene Park on Saturday, April 23rd from 10am until Noon.

Finally, all the stuff you didn't sell during the Neighborhood Yard Sale and want to dispose of can be taken care of during the Browne's Addition Neighborhood Spring Clean Up. It takes place on April 26th. More information about the clean up will be posted soon.

Tomorrow the 2011 Komen Race for the Cure makes its way through the neighborhood.

Tomorrow, Sunday April 17, the 2011 Komen Race for the Cure is taking place. The race starts at 9am and will be making its way through Browne's Addition. Because of our "cozy" streets, officials have put up No Parking signs on some of the streets. They will only impact parking on one side of the affected streets. We don't know what time they will be begin enforcing the signs, but it is probably a good idea to move your car tonight if it needs to be moved. Here are the streets that are affected (with the side of the street cars will need to be moved from):
  • Cannon between Riverside and Pacific (West)
  • Chestnut between Pacific and 2nd (East)
  • Elm between 2nd and 1st (East)
  • 1st between Elm and Maple (North)
For a map of the route, check out the Race's event map.
