This past fall, a group of leaders started meeting to counter neighborhood violence and negative activity and to strengthen our neighborhood for our young people and families by creating more opportunities for recreation. The Hawley Street Task Force recently completed ran a winter basketball league at Trinity Lutheran Church that engaged boys and girls in grades 4-6. Thank you to all our players, parents, coaches, and volunteers for helping our initiative so successful!
This league serves as a launching point to build stronger relationships with our youth, their families, and our neighborhood organizations and institutions. We are so happy to be one of the organizing members of the Task Force, and look forward to planning summer activities with our young people in our Piedmont neighborhood.
