September 2019

Hi neighbor,

The gardens around NOTA are looking fabulous! A huge thank you to the University of Rochester students for gardening in the Portsmouth Gardens for Wilson Day   Mayer Paint & Hardware for donated the mulch for the project and everyone did an amazing job.

The George Eastman Museum will be presenting their plans to the public for their upcoming renovations at the next neighborhood association board meeting  on September 24th at 7pm in the Writers & Books theater. 

Bruce Barnes, the Ron and Donna Fielding Director of the George Eastman Museum, will share details on the museum's current and future construction projects, including the Colonnade renovation this summer and the new visitor center, which will break ground in January.


Join us in Merriman Park for the last Bagel Brunch of 2019:
