Thanks to everyone who joined us at Rondo Plaza and Victoria Garden on a slushy, unusually warm winter day on February 20th, 2016 for music, s’more’s, food, ping pong, and more!

Our online survey for the Victoria Street bridge project is still open until March 11th; take it here. The survey takes about ten minutes to complete and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to a local restaurant!
