"Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." ~ Fred Rogers
As we wind down 2020, we need to take a few moments to celebrate a few helpers in Ward 6 who have shone during this incredibly hard year. Normally the Brickies are the reason we get together as a community - we enjoy some great food and drinks, talk, laugh, catch-up, and take time to hand out a few bricks to some of the very best of us.
And while we can't get together this year, I can't think of a better way to spend a Thursday evening than by ordering takeout from a beloved Ward 6 restaurant (more on that below), logging on, and giving out some bricks.
So consider this your invitation: join me and hundreds of Ward 6 neighbors for a special virtual Ward 6 Brickies this Thursday, December 3, from 8-9 pm, and see who's going home with a Brickie in this decade of a year. RSVP here to receive the Zoom Link.
I promise, you're going to be very proud to call these folks neighbors when you learn more about the winners in these categories:
Neighbor Award | Business Award | Public Service Award | Civic Pride Award |
Community Organization Award
Finally, let's use the Brickies as a way to drive business to our favorite restaurants. If you're able to, order some tasty bites and a drink to help out the many great restaurants and businesses who normally are the ones supplying the evening with food and drinks.
While I encourage you to support any Ward 6 business, here are some businesses incorporating #Brickies2020 into their offerings on Thursday evening:
