Some diy neighbors helped us all this weekend with some clandestine crosswalk painting across Genesee at 20th. Thank you!
This is a new feature to our newsletter. In the coming months we will feature a different neighbor in this section of the newsletter. We want to highlight a neighbor who many might not know. This neighbor will be someone who quietly is making a difference to all.
This month our unsung hero is a man who does so many little things. He mows a portion of the median on 21st Ave SW. He brings in his neighbors garbage and recycling bins so that that it does not appear that his neighors are not home. He paints out grafitti when he sees it. He is always at our Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council meetings. He is always at our community events helping out. Do you know who is being highlighted here?
It is Gene Recker. Gene is a long time resident of Pigeon Point and has quietly been an unsung hero for many years. It is time that Gene gets a little recognition for his many contributions to our neighborhood.
Thanks Gene for being such a great neighbor!
How long have you lived in our Pigeon Point neighborhood? It doesn’t matter if you have lived here for a week, a year or a lifetime. We want you to be a vital part of this neighborhood. It is amazing, the things that can be accomplished when neighbors band together for a common cause. In the last few years many things have been accomplished. The speed humps on 21st Ave SW; the sidewalk along 21st Ave SW south of Genesee; stopping the housing project in the greenbelt because of environmental concerns; working with Pathfinder on traffic issues and the list goes on. Today we are faced with new issues that our neighbors want to do something about. Like doing something about the condition of 22nd and 23rd Ave SW and the lack of sidewalks, potential for turning the abandoned substation at 21st Ave SW & SW Andover into a neighborhood pocket park or whatever you can dream up that we as a neighborhood would want to work on.
These projects happened because of committed and caring neighbors wanting to make a difference in their neighborhood, neighbors with a vision and commitment to making Pigeon Point a better place to live. Do you have some spare time? Do you care about your neighborhood? Let’s come together and take on a project to help out Pigeon Point.
