John Lewis Freedom Parkway

The City of Atlanta and the Atlanta City Council have voted to rename Freedom Parkway "John Lewis Freedom Parkway" and to dedicate a Freedom Riders Play Space in the park in honor of U.S. Congressman John Lewis. Atlanta City Council Member, Andre Dickens, headed up the effort that was unanimously supported by the Inman Park Neighborhood Association several months ago. The dedication ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018 in the 600 block of Barnett Street, N.E. behind Moe’s Southwest Grill. The new street signage unveiling will take place at the southeast corner of Freedom Parkway and Ponce de Leon Avenue. In a press release from the city, it stated "In March 2017, the Atlanta City Council unanimously passed a resolution authored by Councilmember Andre Dickens and cosponsored by all council members to create a Task Force to determine an appropriate manner in which to honor U.S. Congressman John Lewis, such as renaming a street or naming or dedicating a public place such as a building, plaza, park or other similar public place. It was determined after public deliberation and input that Freedom Parkway should be renamed to honor the Congressman and Civil Rights leader who has dedicated his life to fighting for the freedom and humanity of others."

All are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Tree Planting Honoring Cathy Bradshaw

Tree Planting on March 3 Honors Cathy Bradshaw
On this upcoming Saturday morning, why not slip into an old pair of jeans, lace up your boots, and fill a water bottle? 
Then get yourself over to the home of Jim Abbot and Jeanne LaSala, 946 Waverly Way, by 9:00 AM (earlier if you want a delicious bagel and a steaming hot cup of coffee) to help plant, mulch, and water 75 new trees for Atlanta's best neighborhood!
This year's planting (postponed from January 13) is dedicated to our own Cathy Bradshaw: tireless road warrior; indefatigable neighborhood booster; energetic mother, grandmother, and sister to Inman Park residents; and not least, together with her husband Bo, a founding member of the IPNA Tree Watch Committee. Just before the planting demonstration, Cathy will be honored in brief remarks and presented with a gift of appreciation from the neighborhood. You're very welcome to join us for the ceremony, even if you can't stay for the planting. 
Please note that it's not too late to express YOUR appreciation to Cathy with a donation in support of Tree Watch (check to Friends of Inman Park, c/o Steve Hays, 207 Hurt St NE, Atlanta, GA 30307, "Cathy Bradshaw Tribute") or to our wonderful partner Trees Atlanta (please choose the option "Tribute Gift" and add "Cathy Bradshaw" in the comment box). 
Details
When: Saturday, March 3, 9:00 a.m. - noon, rain or shine.
Where: 946 Waverly Way (intersection of Waverly Way & Hurt Street).
What: Bring a water bottle and a pair of work gloves if you have them, and Trees Atlanta will supply the rest.
How: Don't worry — we'll show you how to plant a tree. 
Why: Because Inman Park loves its trees!
