525 22nd Ave N (You’re welcome through the alley!)

Last year was the tenth annual edition of the PTPL. What does that mean then? Well, it means that this year, ours goes to 11. Bring your Thanksgiving leftovers to share. Elisabeth will provide all the drinks, including beer on tap, plenty of wine, and a specialty cocktail called, of course, the Spinal Tap. Remember that EVERYONE is welcome—your out-of-town guests, Morty the Mime, exploding drummers, and whomever else might enjoy the fun.

11/28/19 | Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Back, by popular demand… Can you believe it? 7 years. Here’s hoping you can join in the festivities to make this year’s parade the best ever. As usual, the parade will be Thanksgiving Day morning. Meet up at 536 25th Ave No. at 9:00 for refreshments and socializing. We’ll start the parade at 10:00.

There is no designated theme, so flaunt your style by going big by wearing a
costume, making a float, riding your bike, decorating your car, or walking with us – just have fun! For those of you left inside cooking turkey (yummy), make sure to come outside and cheer us on when we pass your house. The map below shows the path we will follow. The parade takes about an hour. We’ll be making noise, so you should hear us as we approach.

If you have any questions, contact Nancy Way at nancyway@ymail.com
Be sure to use “parade” in the subject line.

10/3/19 | Final Hearing for Historic Designation of Church

Final Hearing for Historic Designation of Church
Thursday October 3rd 2019
Sunshine Center | 330 5th St N, St. Petersburg, FL 33701
8:30AM (Note: this is a change)

The Church of the Beatitudes / Grace Lutheran Church historical designation is finally going before City Council for final approval.  The process took almost two years, but (assuming the motion passes) this historic building in our neighborhood will be saved from demolition and given extra protection in the future.  Show your support in two ways:

  1. Attend the hearing!  At the developer’s request the hearing was moved to a morning session.  The item should be heard around 9:00 am.
  2. Send an e-mail showing your support to council@stpete.org.  Please cc Ms. Laura Duvekot (laura.duvekot@stpete.org) on the correspondence so that she can include the number of comments received in support in her final presentation.

Initially the hearing was scheduled at the Council’s evening meeting, and CHNA had planned a celebration event downtown after the designation was approved.  However, with this time change, we’ll save our celebration for the November General Meeting on November 11, 2019.  Thank you so much to everyone who worked on this project over the past two years and who advocated so strongly to save this beautiful building and piece of history here in CHNA.

Yesterday’s Gone by N.J.

It is the log book of Squadron Leader David Kirby, DSO, DFC, pilot of a four-engine Lancaster in the RAF’s perilous and deadly night-after-night pounding of Germany. A reviewer in 1983, when the novel was published, called it “a sturdy, linear, deglamorized air-war log – by a talented suspense writer.
