It was a pleasure to meet our neighbors and share good food at the North Street Neighborhood Association barbecue on July 21. Dennis Helmus spoke to the crowd about Kohl Construction’s plans to build 31 condo units in the forest nearby. Attendees included Ward 3 City Councilor Marilyn Richards and Northampton Redoubt blogger Daryl LaFleur. The marvelous NorthAssoc.org cake was made by Greggory’s Pastry Shop of Hadley.
