Jobs, trees, murals, anti-dumping action, and crudités

The West Oakland Neighborhood Fair was a resounding success! The new development and beautification projects will bring jobs to the neighborhood, to union tradespeople as well as local youth. If you are interested in finding out more, email the Myrtle Street Review and we will direct you to the right people!

And if you are interested in volunteering, planting trees, socializing with your neighbors and generally being an awesome citizen, there's lots to do. In the next few days we'll be posting more information about different opportunities.

Here are some photos from today's lovely event, which was held at St. Vincent de Paul Community Center and catered by their Kitchen of Champions program with delicious food and treats.

The energy was great and warm and neighborliness abounded. Thanks so much to Alex and everyone else who organized!
