This year, we are thankful for all of our neighbors and that we can get together for social events again. Building on the popularity of the summer picnic potluck, we’ll be having a Friends-giving potluck at Mercy-Bush Park. Join us on Sunday November 13, from 4-6 pm for an early Thanksgiving celebration with good food and good company!
No sign ups required — To participate, please bring:
a labeled Thanksgiving-style dish (not dessert though)
your own picnic blanket
your own reusable plates, forks, and cups — we’ll have a limited supply of apple cider to share!
The fire department has been invited, and we will have name tags and a sign in sheet. Please plan to clean up your own area and anything that you bring. See you there!
A community event of the Old Mountain View Neighborhood Association (OMVNA)
We had an amazing turnout of a couple hundred neighbors at Mercy-Bush Park last weekend, creating chalk rangolis and dancing with dandiya sticks. Please enjoy the photos below. Special thanks to the event leads, Kavita, Deb, and Upma!
Diwali is a festival of lights and one of the major festivals celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and some Buddhists. The festival usually lasts five days and is celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar month Kartika (between mid-October and mid-November). Diwali symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”.
To all Old Mountain View residents and property owners,
Linda Jones is working with Home First regarding the operation of their winter shelter at Trinity United Methodist Church on Mercy Street. They are looking to expand their hours in the morning to allow for families/school children to have a bit more time at the shelter before having to leave in the morning. They are making a minor request to modify their Provisional Use Permit and would require approval by the Zoning Administrator. As part of the request, they are scheduling an outreach meeting with our neighborhood to answer any questions we might have about this change in hours request.
The outreach meeting will be on Zoom. If you would like to attend, please use the link below to register for the meeting.
Thanks to our Zoom master Susan Bickford for setting up the Zoom Meeting.
Looking forward to seeing many of you there.
OMVNA Vice Chair
