Dear Neighbors,

Join us Monday, July 4th at 9:30 am for 8th annual Hancock Neighborhood Association 4th of July Parade and Picnic at Lee Elementary. The playground is closed for construction, so we’ll be on the front lawn with tents, food and fun. Thank you to the Kahlor/Junker family for setting up a sign up for food, tables, and necessary gear, and for letting us spill over into their lawn and house.


The parade starts at 10 am, and a big shout out to Mark Harkrider for getting the fire truck. We will parade around the 8 blocks (thanks Robin for the flags!) and come back to Lee to picnic. Bring your wagon, bike, boom box, dog, or fun car, and join us! If you have questions, want to set up or wonder what we need, please text me 504.392.4919.

And, this year, we are thrilled to partner with the Hemphill Neighborhood Association to keep the party going. There will be a bounce house water slide in the park from 12-2 pm, and all are welcome. Please bring watermelon or dessert to share, your towels, sunblock and picnic blanket. Thanks, Carole LaClaire for setting it up! And, Lindsey Heddleston, Brandon Tucker and Zack Simpson for making this partnership happen.

As always, a big shout out to Jillian Copeland, Amanda Nite, and Snow White for signs, volunteers, set up, gear and decorating, and Bruce Fairchild for handling the details. We can’t wait to see you and your kids!
