Connecting the Dots

Hundreds of people showed up for the Connecting the Dots event at Marshall High School on Saturday. Neighborhood hero awards were given and many non-profits had booths.

The Hillsider's own vice-president, Scott Yeazle was awarded the neighborhood hero award for Central Hillside.

Currently I am laying out the October issue of "The Hillsider." There will be profiles on each hero in this issue.

Duluth LISC and the At Home in Duluth Collaborative will hosted it’s third Neighborhood Celebration on Saturday, September 26. The event opened with a free pancake breakfast followed by a program at where five Neighborhood Heroes were be honored.

Neighborhood Heroes that were recognized were: East Hillside: Archie Davis; Central Hillside: Scott Yeazle; West Duluth: Karin Swor; Lincoln Park: Mark Howard, and Morgan Park: Chester “Chet” Johnson.

Over 35 display booths offering information and tips from community-minded businesses and organizations.
This was an opportunity for neighborhood residents, business, education and community leaders and elected officials to come together in support of Duluth’s five core neighborhoods: East Hillside, Central Hillside, Lincoln Park, West Duluth and Morgan Park.

on Tuesday, Sept. 29th there will be a neighborhood gathering at Portland Square from 5 - 7 p.m. Bell Brothers-Jarvi Dowd is providing hot dogs and grill. Most of the energy put into this has been by the block watch "East Hillside Action Team." I have a flyer so if you are interested in seeing it let me know and I'll forward it along.
