Ten Together – Upper Noe Block Party

Upper Noe Block PartyThis 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 info@uppernoeneighbors.com.

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.

Curator Closed
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.

Upper Noe Neighbors Meeting
Our general meetings for July and September are cancelled. Please join us at Ten Together on September 15 and come to the next general meeting on October 17.

Upper Noe Neighbors (UNN), your neighborhood advocacy group, has been in existence since 1988. Our mission is to promote the collective interest of the people living in or running a business or institution in Upper Noe. We act to inform the public of matters important to our residents, to seek their input, and to present a forceful collective voice in dealing with civic, social, and safety issues. We take an inclusive approach to improving life in the southern part of Noe Valley and the surrounding areas. We meet bimonthly on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM at the Upper Noe Recreation Center.

Please consider joining UNN and working with us to make our neighborhood the BEST it can be.  We’re also looking for neighbors who may be interested in participating in one of our committees; Public Safety, Transportation, Land Use, Online Communications, Memberships and Events.  If you would like to become a member today, please click on the ‘Get Involved’ tab and complete the brief membership form and mail it to us with your dues.

Get involved and together we can continue to have a vibrant and welcoming neighborhood in which you LOVE to live!
