Dearborn Candidates MEET & GREET

Southwestern Outer Drive Neighborhood Association of Dearborn (SODA) is sponsoring a Meet and Greet forum for Dearborn candidates for mayor, city council, and city clerk on:

Thursday, October 12, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Whitmore-Bolles Elementary
21501 Whitmore St, Dearborn, MI 48124

SODA members and the general public are invited. We very much hope that you will be able to participate.

All candidates have been sent an invitation letter.

SODA is a registered Michigan domestic non-profit corporation with the mission to promote common interest and welfare of people who are members of SODA. To provide a forum for the exchange of ideas for the improvement of our community and neighborhood. And to engage in social, charitable, and other activities which make our neighborhood and community a better place to live.

SODA is a non-political organization, as such we do not endorse candidates and we are not affiliated with political parties. In the regular course of business we work closely with Dearborn elected officials and we feel it is important that all candidates seeking election understand the needs and concerns of the residents of the Southwestern Outer Drive Neighborhood.

Penn-Vassar Park Flower Box

A big thank you to Walt Cerulla, and Dan and Michele Featherston. They spent several hours cleaning out the flower box at Penn-Vassar Park. The next group of volunteers will rebuilt the flower box. Plans are underway to plant tulips and daffodils, followed by annual flowers next year. The volunteers were very appreciative of the residents who stopped and said thank you or waved as the work was completed.
FYI: 13 years ago the flower box was built by Boy Scouts in Troop 1112 with the assistance of SODA members.
