The annual UHA Block Party was a success, as usual thanks to good weather and the contributions of neighborhood residents, businesses and City groups. A big thank you to all who joined us and gave of your time to ensure the Block Party was successful and fun. 

This year's attendees included several police officers from the Southeast Area Command and a fire engine and crew from the Albuquerque Fire Department.

Tito Madrid and Joyce Pullen from the Mayor's Office were kind enough to come and speak with neighborhood residents, and Savina Garcia answered questions and gave details regarding the Lead-Coal Improvement Project. you can get more information about the project by clicking on this link or from the link on the UHANM home page.

Food was donated by Frontier Restaurant, Einstein Bagels, Papa John's Pizza, Lanny Heinlen, and Julie Ahern.

In addition to meeting new residents and talking with the police, fire, and mayor's office representatives, some people signed up for the Neighborhood Patrol.  Anyone else interested in being part of the Neighborhood Patrol, can contact Don Hancock by email at or 262-1862.  More information about the Neighborhood Patrol is also in the Summer 2011 newsletter, click here to see the newsletter.
