Fall fest on Upper Avenue – Saturday, October 19th

Our Businesses on Upper Avenue between Joicey and Roe put on a very enjoyable Fall fest – a fall-themed “open house” event to celebrate our vibrant Upper Avenue community on Saturday, October 19th.   Councillor Colle and his Staff made a great piping hot minestrone soup.  Good turnout and everyone enjoyed the events/giveaways/specials.  We will be starting the planning soon for an even bigger and better event in 2020!
