Nonquit Green Hosts Community Birthday Party

Posted: June 24, 2012     Nancy J Conrad

The Nonquit Street Neighborhood Association and Land Trust was established in 1994 and the Nonquit Green opened on June 25, 2002, eight years later.  Ever since then, the "green" has served as a quiet and safe space for local families to gather, relax and socialize.  On June 24, almost exactly ten years after its opening, the Green was the site of a birthday party for one of the community "regulars," Clarence Brown. 

Family and friends gathered in the park on Sunday afternoon, June 24, with all the supplies needed to have an outdoor barbecue and birthday celebration.  Utensils, plates, cups and soda were set up on one of the picnic tables and trays of food surrounded Chef Gloria (Clarence's wife) who was preparing the barbecue.  Meanwhile Clarence and friends, including the little ones, were dancing to the sounds of soul and hip-hop and rap.  The kids had so much fun they both fell down and scraped their knees.  Not too far away, more neighbors enjoyed the park and the sight and sound of the party goers having fun.

This neighbor (and photographer) (Nancy Conrad) promised them a set of great photos in exchange for a plate of incredible food - mac&cheese, beans and rice, BBQ chicken and pork and more.  A great time was had by all.  Please note:  We have permission from both Clarence and Gloria to post the event in UC News.

Also thanks to the Nonquit Green Foundation for such an intimate and safe setting for a community birthday party.
