District 10

Pick Up & Party event May 13

The Como Community Council will host its second annual Pick Up & Party event at Orchard Rec Center, 875 W. Orchard Ave. Whether you come with your neighbors or come to meet your neighbors, all are welcome.

The activities begin at 2 p.m. with a neighborhood cleanup from Front Street to Como Avenue and Dale Street to the railroad tracks. Check in at the rec center for your supplies and the location to start your pickup.

After the cleanup, neighbors will meet back at the rec center at 3:30 p.m. for a grill out, kids crafts (including build-your-own bird houses), yard games, community organizations and more. All are invited to this free event.

Other upcoming District 10 events include an annual ice cream social at the Como Streetcar Station in July and a Harvest Festival in the Tilden Park area in October. Get involved in planning an event in your sub-district, or ANY of the sub-districts, at our Neighborhood Relations Committee meetings.
