Boylan Heights to Celebrate National Night Out

Our neighborhood will join thousands of communities across the nation on Tuesday, August 4th to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood unity at the annual National Night Out. Continuing our tradition, we invite you to a neighborhood walk and ice cream social to meet and greet neighbors. The walk will begin at 7:00 pm and we will wind through the neighborhood gathering up residents as we pass (the vicinity of) your house. Further details on the route are coming to the website. We will arrive at the Project Enlightenment playground and have free ice cream from 7:45 to 8:15 pm. Come out and join in the fun! To promote neighborhood safety and unity we encourage you to purchase a Neighborhood Watch sign to display on your house. During the month of July we are offering a special price of $10 per sign, plus free installation. Each house displaying the sign as of July 31st will be entered into a drawing for a stunning prize to be awarded at the NNO ice cream social. Get in the action, today!

Big Boylan Bash 2015 is almost here!

When is it?     Sunday August 9th, 4pm to 7pm

What is it?    The Big Boylan Bash is a chance for neighbors to get together on a Sunday afternoon in August to hear great live music, socialize, eat and sample some tasty beverages. In the process we also try to raise a little money for the Boylan Heights Association.

Where is it?  Dupont Circle Park (near the corner of S. Boylan Ave and Dupont Circle)

The Bands?  The exciting news is that we have have three bands scheduled to play the Bash:  Walking Deadbeats, Roar the Engines and the Ghost of Saturday Nite.  All of these bands have a member living in the neighborhood.  Check out the links to their music and make sure to come out to support your neighbor’s artistic endeavors.

The Sponsors?  So far we have received generous support from Clancy and Theys, the Northgate Group, Peter Rumsey, Studio Joyeux, Councilman Russ Stephenson, CitySpace Homes, Domino’s Pizza, Blam! Studios, Interactive Playgrounds and Moonlight Pizza.

More information is coming soon additional activities, sponsors, and raffle prizes.

Big Boylan Bash of 2014

The Big Boylan Bash is scheduled for Sunday, August 10th from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm. The two bands that we’ll have playing the Bash this year are the New Orleans Masqueraders and the Old Laws.

After many years of helping out the Boylan Bash with their grilling expertise, Jim and Leslie Kellenberger are hanging up their aprons to enjoy some much deserved relaxation which means that this year the Bash is going to go back to its roots and is primarily going to be a potluck event. That is of course, unless someone in the neighborhood has a commercial grill and would like the opportunity to step into the role of grill master. If such a soul exists, please contact me.

In addition to the music, beverages from the Boylan Bridge Brewpub and food there will be entertainment for the kids and a guest appearance from a Raleigh Mounted Police Officer.

Please note that Dupont Circle from Boylan Avenue to the split with Kinsey Street will be closed from Noon until approximately 9:00 pm Sunday evening for the event.  You will still be able to reach Kinsey Street via Dupont at Cabarrus.

So far we have Clancy and Theys, Peter Rumsey of Allen Tate Realtors, the Northgate Group, CitySpace, Five Star Restaurant, Downtown Mobile Vet, Chris Yetter of DT & Company Real Estate, and Little Raleigh Radio as cash sponsors of the event.

In kind sponsors of the event include Boulted Bread, Interactive Playgrounds, Tuscan Blu and Lomo Market.

We’re still accepting cash sponsors for the event and definitely looking for more raffle prizes for the raffle.  All money raised goes towards funding other neighborhood events and local charities.

For more info on the Bash or if you’d like to sponsor or assist, please contact me at 919-264-9901 or haignere@gmail.com. Thanks!
