What is a Candle Lantern, you ask? Its a repurposed two-liter soda bottle! Volunteers from the Avid program at Boise High will help the kiddos turn their bottle into a “lantern” using a pipe-cleaner handle, colored crepe paper, and finishing it off with a well-secured tea light to illuminate their artwork. The Candle Lantern Parade is a North End tradition that we hope you’ll be able to join!
Special thanks to Goody’s, Sun Ray Cafe and Boise High for making this event so much fun. Email email@example.com
Just a reminder that this coming Tuesday, October 22nd, NENA will be hosting a special event at North Junior High from 7-9 PM.

We hope you can join us for this important event.

THANK YOU & HAPPY HALLOWEEN
The stolen flags were purchased by NENA back in 2011 and were hung up each holiday by Mark Baltes, a neighborhood volunteer and NENA Board member.
Our flags are important to us.
We, the NENA Board, decided at our July Board Meeting to reinvest in the neighborhood and replace the flags. Yesterday Mark walked some new volunteers through the process of assembling and hanging the flags. Today, Harrison Boulevard is celebrating Labor Day in red, white and blue.
Thank you to everyone who tried to help in recovering the flags. That’s what our great neighborhood is all about!
