Springblast 2019

From the SpringBlast web site:

SAVE THE DATE: #SpringBlast APRIL 6, 2019

SpringBlast is a day of service dedicated to serving our neighbors. Our goal is to connect Purdue students and residents in making a more united community. SpringBlast was established in order to make that possible.

Which Homes “Qualify”?

This year, to guarantee that we can get to all of the residents on our list, we hope to work with folks who live within a 15-minute drive of Purdue University’s campus. Please let us know if you need accommodations!

I registered, now what?

You will hear back at the end of March about what time to expect volunteers day-of!  

Questions?

Please contact our student Community Partner liaison at bia@purdue.edu with any questions you might have!

Sign-up for this year’s SpringBlast program

13th Annual Soup ‘N Dance

Join neighbors, family, and friends for New Chauncey’s biggest event, the 13th annual Soup & Square Dance on Friday, Jan. 25th from 6 to 8 pm at the old Happy Hollow Elementary School, now the Happy City Hollow.

Entertainment will include LIVE MUSIC and family-oriented square dancing for all. You don’t have to square dance if you don’t want to, but we know we’re going to have fun at it (even though most of us are only beginners)!

The cost to rent the room, pay the musicians, and everything else for the event is around $500. The New Chauncey Neighborhood Association would appreciate a donation to help offset the cost. The suggested amounts are $5 per individual or $15 per family. You can also send money via PayPal.

Please bring a soup, bread/butter/cornbread/rolls, a fruit/veggie tray, or dessert to serve 10 people. The more the merrier!

Drinks and paper goods provided. Along with power strips for the soup (if you’re bringing a crockpot).

Please let us know if you will bring food, be paying, and if you can help set up at 5.

For those of you that are on our e-mail list, you should have received an evite to the event.  Please RSVP by January 24rd (so we have an approx. # attending).  If you are not on our e-mail list, please sign-up and we can get one sent out to you.
