Today is about reflection and new beginnings, I hope you’re all enjoying your day!!!

12 ways to live more RESPONSIBLE + LOCAL in the NEW YEAR:

  • Donate to a local charity: West End Performing Arts Center, Hammond House, Wrens Nest, Friends of the West end Park, Etc. Support local institutions!
  • Use the Beltline-get your bike, walking shoes and get going!
  • Attend SATURDAY MORNING FITNESS CLASSES (10am) in the West End Park
  • Attend Neighborhood + Park Clean ups (and Neighborhood meetings) for dates check upcoming events. Park Clean ups are usually 3rd Saturday/every month.
  • Volunteer to tutor (after-school) at Brown Middle School, call (404) 756-6414
  • Order your recycling bin…call 404.330.6333.
  • Host a West End swap or participate in one!
  • Support local businesses: Coffee Shop, Print Shop, ACE etc. We don’t want those businesses we like to close.
  • Write a letter and complaint to Kroger (corporate) about our stores condition. You can do it via email by visiting: or call 1-866-221-4141 or mail letters to: 1014 Vine Street Cincinnati, Ohio 45202-1100. The condition of our local store is sub-standard! Visit the Edgewood store and compare! They can do better!
  • Work to make our schools + local library better!
  • Use our GOODWILL store wisely by donating items in good condition + shopping there.
  • Participate in our West End Neighborhood Yard Sale organized by Percy (end of the summer)
  • Give the West End lots and lots of LOVE!

    Are the fitness classes being held outdoors every Saturday? What should we wear? It sounds like fun!

    Hi Julie! The classes are held at the park (outdoors). Normally Beth emails if the class is going to be cancelled and I try to post it here on the blog. Also, I’ll pass on your email address to Beth so she can add you to her list. You can wear sweats, sneakers (and if it’s cold dress warm). If you’d like bring a yoga mat. Let me know if you have any other questions.
