Woodland Heights Makers’ Day returns Nov. 5, 2022

Our last Makers’ Day in 2019 was a great success thanks to our generous vendors and participants, and we’re bringing the event back to the neighborhood! Join us as the Woodland Heights Civic Association presents an arts and crafts event to benefit the Woodland Heights Food Closet. 100 percent of vendor registration fees will be donated to the food closet to help them purchase food items for our friends and neighbors in need of food. Please support us as we support them!

Saturday, November 5, 2022

10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Woodland Heights Baptist Church (611 W. 31st St. off of Semmes Ave.)

Local artists and artisans will be showing and selling their handmade items, and we’ll have a craft table for kids and face painting.

Please join us!

Woodland Heights Little Neighborhood Resources

Neighbors Tanya Pruett and Mark Lewis have compiled the locations of little libraries, food pantries, little art galleries, and the Li’l Info Shop in Woodland Heights. Tanya and Mark drove, walked, and biked around the neighborhood to identify where these acts of kindness are located. After locating and writing down a brief description of each resource, Tanya and Mark entered the information into a Google map and created a webpage to access the map.

If you are out and about in our neighborhood, you can find wonderful reading material, food, displays of art and rad literature! Please support these community-driven locations by visiting them, donating or maybe get inspired and create your own little place.

Provide your feedback on Riverside News, our print newsletter

We know times have changed. Some of us love picking up a paper copy of our Riverside News and reading about topics of community interest, while many of us consume news solely online or among friends and neighbors. There are also individuals who like keeping informed any which way they can, and we appreciate all of you.

Riverside News is typically published 4 times per year. We’ve scaled it back to 2 issues in 2021 due to low content submissions. While our generous neighborhood advertisers have offset the financial cost of the print newsletter, our volunteers contribute hours of time each issue securing content and advertisements, arranging layouts, and delivering the print editions.
