The Macris' of Springfield

I support Spar because I see the potential for the neighborhood, and I see Spar as a vital link between neighbors, government and other civic institutions.

I think we all more or less agreed that board meetings were starting at 5:30. Everything else looks good to me.

Christmas tree is back on -- noon Friday 11/30

Committee members--
The Christmas Tree is happening. 
The city has come through with a lift and a driver. The lift will be at Klutho Park at noon on Friday
Between now and then, please do what you can to collect ornaments, bows, garland, or whatever you can get your hands on. You can bring everything to the spar building or bring it to Klutho on Friday.
Since we only have the lift until 3:30, we will start at the top and work our way down. If anyone has any tall ladders, bring them if you can and you can go bottom up. Also, this is my first 30-foot tree to decorate. If anyone has any suggestions on how we should tackle this, please speak up.
I will be down there at around 11:30 to try and get a game plan together.

So I don’t need to go out and buy a generator for the tree? Dang, I had justification!

I reached out to Rivers Pest Control to see if they could donate their lift. I’m expecting a call back from a Debbie.

Hi Trong, yes, so long as its during business hours, someone will be there. I’d reach out to Lorrae to see what her plan is.

Did we ever find a lift?

We should probably follow up with Darryl at the city again. Laura, can you take this on since you have a good relationship with him?

The alley behind the old jeep place on fourth and main could use a trimming. Fairly overgrown.

Spar and SAMBA Join Forces

Strengthening Community and Business Through Partnership

Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR) and Springfield Area Merchants and Business Association (SAMBA) are proud to announce an on-going partnership, with SAMBA becoming an affiliate of SPAR as of September 2012.

Both organizations share the mission of facilitating a revitalized Springfield historic district, on our residential streets and our commercial corridors alike. In an effort to provide the best possible services and representation to the community, SPAR and SAMBA will share talent and resources, ideas and energy, while maintaining autonomy.

In 1974, SPAR was formed by neighborhood advocates coming together to meet common goals, and almost three decades later, SAMBA was established to help meet the needs of local businesses. We feel that by working together, we better position ourselves to pursue activities and policy beneficial to our growing neighborhood.

We look forward to engaging with residents and the business community to move our diverse and unique community forward, and appreciate your support.

The SPAR and SAMBA Board of Directors

My wife Erin and I moved to the historic district in April of 2007. We live at the corner of 6th and Market along with our daughter London, our soon-to-be-born son Gray and our three dogs, Ory, Titus and Zeus.
