Welcome to the Academy Neighborhood in the City of Erie. Our neighborhood is a few short minutes from downtown Erie and is full of charming homes and proud residents (And let's not forget Mighty Fine Donuts!).
The neighborhood is very loosely defined as State Street near Collegiate Academy. Also French, Holland, and German Streets from East 26th to East 33rd. This is by no means a definitive boundary! It is just the starting point for our neighborhood efforts.
Our first ever Academy Neighborhood Yard/Garage Sale is coming up Saturday, June 9th, 2012. It starts at 8 a.m. and continues through the early afternoon. Everyone is welcome to participate! If you have a garage, porch, or yard you can have a sale June 9th! If you want to have a sale contact Bob through this blog. I am compiling a list of all of the homes participating. As of right now we are not planning on spending money to advertise. We are going to rely on word of mouth, this blog, and the Academy Neighborhood Association facebook page to spread the word.
So tell a neighbor! They may not have heard. And if you aren't having a sale June 9th take some time to walk the neighborhood, get to know your neighbors, and shop for bargains!
