Items of Interest to MHNA

We compile a monthly list of events and news that generally appeals to all Marcy-Holmes neighbors, called "Items of Interest", which is emailed on the first week of the month.   Submit items to the MHNA office in advance of our deadline, which is the first Thursday of the month at noon. " Items of Interest" are emailed, and posted here, in the first week of the month.

MHNA’s editorial policy for " Items of Interest"  is to include community events and activities that happen in the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood and information about events that happen nearby which are of general interest to people who live or visit here. We also occasionally include information about neighborhood or nearby commercial ventures ( e,g, stores, restaurants) IF they have something unique going on or are new to our area. We want to encourage the wonderful variety of businesses here, but we can’t include listings about every sale or promotion. We try to keep the information in "Items of Interest" as thorough and correct as possible, but can’t guarantee that event details won’t have changed since we got the information. Therefore, it never hurts to check the websites before venturing out.
