The Thornton Park District community pulled out all the stops to make changes to their roadways. After many years of meetings, quite a few traffic surveys (and a little bit of begging) and a lot of help from City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, the Thornton Park District now has three intersections with much-needed four-way stop signs installed. A blinking pedestrian light is also set to be installed at the intersection of Washington Street and Summerlin Avenue.
There is a lot going on in the Thornton Park District this month!
Thornton Park merchants are teaming up with the neighborhood association to clean up the neighborhood. The cleanup starts at Graffiti Junktion at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10. Volunteers will be picking up garbage, cigarette butts, unsightly branches, gum, rocks, etc. Neighborhood beautification makes for happy resident and customers. Hang out after and have a beer or soda.
Hope to see you on Nov. 8 for the Thornton 2nd Thursday Wine & Art Walk. Pick up your glass at The Veranda at 707 E. Washington St. $15 gets you a glass and a map of over 25 businesses that will be offering you a tasting. Along the way, there will be live music, art vendors, DJs and more.
On Nov. 30, bring the kids for the tree decoration at the Olde Towne Brokers front lawn. There will be hot cocoa for the kids and wine and mimosas for the parents. And, of course, Santa will be there for pictures. The event goes from 5:30–8:00 p.m. and there will be a free Christmas movie shown after the tree lighting.
