Inside this issue there is additional information about the Tsunami Winter Market. This four-year-old market sets up every Saturday morning in the Tsunami parking lot. We are lucky to have two winter farmers market in our neighborhood offering a plethora of healthy winter food options to CY and Midtown!
This LampLighter is also full of info about upcoming CYCA and community events. This month’s CYCA General Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8 and is dedicated to improving our alleys. If you would like to learn more about efforts to transform our alleys into a safe and beneficial space for everyone, you should attend this meeting. Community input on this issue is welcome and needed. Then on Tuesday, November 15 Santa will be returning to the gazebo to take photos with you, your kids, and your pets. Take advantage of this photo opportunity for a small fee which will be used to fund future public artwork in the neighborhood. Philanthropists among us will have ample volunteer opportunities this November and December with the St. Jude Marathon aid station and the Thanksgiving food drive. Catch all the details in the November LampLighter. And as always, you will find great articles about art openings, book reviews, theatre shows, and even a Thanksgiving movie guide inside.
