Our annual fundraiser and membership drive
Sunday, December 14th @ 5PM (rain date December 21st)
Durham Parks and Recreation is offering a summer series that includes concerts and movies in a beautiful setting - Durham's parks.
Potluck lunch and informal kids parade at Duke Park shelter on Friday, July 4 from 11am to 1pm. Duke Park and Old North Durham neighbors are invited. Parade will take place around noon.
DP&R held a forum at the Park June 25 on the proposed conversion of the old bath house into a pavilion. This is getting serious; the City has architects and landscape designers working on plans. If you missed the meeting and would like to express your wishes, Parks & Rec created the attached survey. Drop it off at DP&R downtown or email it to Beth.Timson@durhamnc.gov.
Ok - here's the skinny on the yard sale: May 17 8-12pm. You hold your sale at your house and the sale will be advertised as neighborhood wide. Maps will be created noting each of your locations. All houses having sales will have copies of the maps to give out to shoppers.
