The Northside’s Manchester Community Hosts Block Party of the Year!
From Manchester, Michelle Wright and her neighbors hosted a community gathering with food, games, entertainment, and raffles. Local businesses and nonprofits showcased their services to help neighborhood residents connect with job opportunities and benefits they can put to use. More than 300 people attended the event, far out-pacing organizers’ expectations.
“Ultimately, the block party gave us an opportunity to unite residents and celebrate this historically black neighborhood,” said project leader Michelle Wright. “The response makes me think that the Manchester Community Block Party will most certainly continue as an annual event for our community!”
