  • WBNA is holding a neighborhood cleanup the same day. Meet at Dexter Training Ground at 8:30AM for White Electric Coffee. Clean our neighborhood streets. Then, gather for a cookout at 1:00PM at the WBNA Headquarters.

  • Now I hear about it. I’m really interested in a plot in the community
    garden if any are left. I’m a little out of your territory, on Ruggles Street, if that makes a difference.

  • Ann, yes, we still have plots left in our community garden!

    Please contact Laura at to let her know you are interested.

    Thank you,
