The capital campaign for the new Bogardus Plaza in its final stages, with just $100K in private funds still needed to reach our $3MM goal for this future 9,000 sq ft community epicenter. In February, we held our first public design workshop and were excited by the many great ideas that resulted from an interactive discussion with the community.


Its warming up just in time for us to launch our spring season of events, kicking off with JAZZFEST this Sunday, April 27th from 11am–2pm. Join neighbors young and old on the plaza for a cool, laid-back afternoon of live jazz by accomplished musicians, plus crafts and cookie decorating for the kids, and some light refreshments from area restaurants.
