[July 11, 2011] July Civic League Meeting: Monday, July 11
In lieu of a formal meeting for July, the Civic League would like to invite all residents to the Riverview Coffee Parlor (4117 Granby Street) on July 11th, at 7:00 p.m., for an Ice Cream Social. There will, of course, be plenty of ice cream, beverages and good conversation with your neighbors. This event is hosted by Alice McCoy, owner of the Riverview Coffee Parlor and President of the Riverview Business Association.

[August 8, 2011] August Civic League Get-Together: Monday, August 8
The Civic League does not typically meet in August, but since many have expressed interest in checking out O Jardim Brazilian Cafe (the new restaurant between the 7-11 and the Eggleston Center (110 La Valette Avenue - across from the tennis courts at Lafayette Park) we decided to have a neighborhood get-together on August 8th, at 7:00 p.m., at the restaurant. There will be lots of good things to eat and drink and a chance to meet Trista Soave (and your neighbors).
