Annual Candle Lantern Parade December 19th
On December 19, please join us for our annual Candle Lantern Parade! The evening will begin at Goody’s at 6pm with story time, then Santa will lead the children to Sun Ray Cafe, where they will enjoy hot cocoa and candle lantern decorating. Then Santa and the children will carol through Hyde Park with their lanterns aglow.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

The Flags on Harrison
Over the 4th of July you may recall that all 30 of the American Flags hung on Harrison Boulevard were stolen during the night. While Boise Police were active in trying to find the thief and many neighbors offered no-questions-asked places to return the flags, they were never recovered.
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!
