19th Ward Activities

Posted by on Dec 5, 2009 in Neighborhood | 0 comments

The 19th Ward Community Association was established in 1965 to promote the quality of life and character of the 19th Ward Neighborhood. Our motto is “Urban by Choice” and our mission is “To create a conscious multi-racial community where individual and cultural differences are celebrated and where people share a sense of community.”

An all-volunteer, member-supported organization, the Association advocates for its residents with local government and organizations on community, crime, and public safety issues. It also hosts special and social events including:

  • Martin Luther King Luminary Evening (January)
  • Community Candlelight Dinners (February)
  • Citizen & Merchant of the Year Awards (May)
  • Square Fair & Parade, Garden Tours (June)
  • Neighborhood Potluck Picnics (Summers)
  • House Tours (October)
  • Annual Convention (November)

Officers for the coming year were just elected at last month’s Convention and two of these annual events, the MLK Luminary Evening and Candlelight Dinners are coming up. See associated articles below.
