Next month our neighborhood will hold the Alvarado Showcase. It is an opportunity for residents, their family members and some local businesses to showcase what they do or love. Participants might be artisans, crafters, local business owners, professionals, service providers and others would like to meet to share their work and passions.
Angela Adu-Badu is the organizer of this first-ever event. She and her family have owned property in the neighborhood since the 1970s. She thinks a showcase will be an excellent way to highlight some of the diverse interests, skills and products we have to share right here, in and near Alvarado Estates.
It’s her experience this past year and a half that has inspired her to bring the community together in this way. Adu-Badu reminisces that “during COVID, Alvarado Estates has proven to be more than a group of neighbors, we are extended family. Now we have the opportunity to share our passions with each other; giving us the opportunity to bond even closer.”
This event will be held outside in our community park, which will provide a safer space to gather. Participants will be asked to follow any current COVID-related health and safety practices. Those who showcase will have their own space to connect with others and can bring a table, chair and shade canopy as desired.
The Alvarado Showcase is planned for Oct. 9. Contact Anglela Adu-Badu at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
