Newark Central Ward District Leader and President of The Historic James Street Commons Neighborhood Association Tammy Hollaway will host a Block Party to acknowledge Central Ward residents and District Leaders impacted by COVID-19. The Block Party will take place Saturday August 7, 2021 beginning at 1pm until 4pm. Festivities will begin at 53 Burnet Street, Newark, NJ 07102.
“As a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic, many of our Central Ward residents have endured loss, isolation, uncertainty and short and long term illness. The impact of COVID-19 continues to remind us that our communities should always share, celebrate and be kind to one another. I want neighbors and families to know that the Central Ward is united in our recovery process. As New Jersey businesses and schools gradually reopen, I understand many people are eager to get back to our social norms. By working together, we will get there safely one step at a time. Please join us on August 7th at 1pm for some family friendly BBQ, crab boil and a moment of reflection” – -Tammy Hollaway
