Last week was Busy!

Friday, April 20th, Friends of Norwood Center sponsored our First MEAL MOB/CASH MOB at the Common Cafe. What fun that was! A group mobbed the cafe and ordered from their menu of delicious salads, wraps, soups, cookies, and more. What a delicious way to support the community.

We also held our first SPENDING SATURDAY. With various "green" offers and events around Earth Day, participating stores like Babel's Paint and Decorating, Envy Boutique, Twice Is Nice, and Silver and Sage provided discounts and specials on their products.

Sunday was Earth Day and Friends of Norwood Center celebrated it at the Earth Day Extravaganza sponsored by Together Yes, the Environmental Youth Coalition, the Morrill Memorial Library, and the FNC. Due to the much-needed rain, the event was indoors at the United Church of Norwood's Community Room. I offered free face painting in Earth-themed subjects. What fun it was.

Today I'm delighted to announce that the soon-to-open Charles River Running at 679 Washington Street is starting its build-out and has a 'coming soon' sign in its window. Can't wait for the grand opening!

The Sweeterie, at 686 Washington Street (across from Perks Coffeehouse) is now open 7 days for your ice cream needs in the warmer weather. Fresh FroYo is also an option for your cooler sweet needs.

More is coming from FNC. Be sure to keep checking in for information on new Meal Mobs and more!

Thanks for reading!
