TIMES Fundraiser & New Neighbors Party

Friday, October 12th, 6pm-9pm
[Joe’s Cafe, 6014 Kingsbury Ave.]

This most neighborly of neighborhoods loves to welcome its newest residents. This year, the TIMES of SKINKER-DEBALIVIERE is joining forces with the SD Community Council in hosting a “New Neighbors Party” at Joe’s Cafe, 6014 Kingsbury, Bill Christman’s unique sculpture garden and entertaining space.  The party will start at 6:00 p.m., Friday, October 12, 2012.  All new neighbors are invited to come free of charge.  All other neighbors are invited to come with a minimum donation of $ 5 per person. A cash bar will be accompanied by free appetizers, donated by the generous volunteers who work hard to make the TIMES not only the oldest, but the best neighborhood newspaper in St. Louis.  Proceeds help keep the TIMES free to all homes.  A special free-admission invitation is being extended to those block “flyer deliverers” who make that possible. We especially wish to reach out to new neighbors, so if you know of someone who fits that description, let us know, or just invite them to the party!  Kids are welcome, too.
