Ten Together a Huge Success
We are thrilled and honored by the immense turnout at Upper Noe Rec Center on Saturday, September 15. Thank you to all of the merchants who supported this event, and to the schools, community organizations, and hundreds of attendees who came to celebrate our little park, including Mayor London Breed, State Senator Scott Wiener, District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, Assessor Carmen Chu, Rec & Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg and Ingleside Station Captain Jack Hart. Upper Noe Facilities Coordinator Cheryl Woltjen was rightly honored with a commendation for her excellent work. We are truly ten together.
Ten Together – Upper Noe Block Party
This fall marks ten years since Rec & Park transformed Upper Noe Recreation Center into an attractive community center. Upper Noe Neighbors, FNVRC, Upper Noe CRC, and FUNDOG have joined together to host a neighborhood-wide block party at the park. Come celebrate. Everyone is invited to join in the fun on Saturday, September 15 from noon to 4. Do you have some great ideas? Want to help? Would you like a table for your organization? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
XO Cafe’ Changes Hands
For the moment, it appears that business will go on as usual at this popular commuter destination and local hang-out. However, we will miss the friendly faces of Adam, the owner/founder who had less and less time to devote to his baking, and Betty, the ever-present manager. The new owner, Cassandra, will be familiar to long-time patrons as the cafe’s first manager. We wish Adam and Betty good luck in their new endeavors and success to the new XO.
For many years, an interesting drop in spot on Church Street for made-in-San Francisco fashion, gifts, nick knacks and a friendly hello, Curator has called it quits here citing low foot traffic for a decline in business. Deirdre and Stacy continue to do business at 1173 Valencia and online at curatorsf.com. We wish them all the best.
