... And they are ours.

More than 250 Erie Housing Authority residents attended the recent  annual Meet Your Neighbor Day at the John E. Horan Garden Apartment.

Activities included a Bike Rodeo sponsored by the Housing Authority of the City of Erie/City of Erie Police Quebec Unit; a Book Give Away sponsored by the YMCA and Books for Kids, a picnic lunch sponsored  by the Housing Authority; information-tables with SafeNet's message, "Hands are not for hitting"  and Early Connections information (Early Connections staffers also did Face Painting).

Information was also given out by Multi-Cultural Health Evaluation Delivery System (MHEDS); the Multicultural Resource Center (MCRC); the Erie County Public Library; The Housing Authority's Family Self-Sufficiency Program; AmeriHealth Caritas; and the Gannon Nursing program.

MCRC sponsored an International Food Event with Eddie Ocasio served as the DJ.
