Briarcrest’s annual party April 13: An evening of history

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

What do you remember about old Briarcrest?

The kite hill that is now Shorecrest High? The mini-prison at what is now the Fircrest school? The riding stable that is now a residential street?

Long-time neighbors and newcomers are invited to share their stories at the Briarcrest Neighborhood Association’s anniversary party April 13.

Vicki Stiles, director of the Shoreline Historical Museum, will make a presentation and neighbors will have time to share their stories and pictures. 

Neighborhood leader Katherine Hall says "We hope the neighborhood can add to the museum’s collection of Briarcrest history."

The BNA will honor those who have worked with the Neighborhood Association over the years.

The party will run from 5-8 pm at the First Christian Reformed Church, 14555 25th Ave NE. The spaghetti dinner will cost $3 per child, $5 per adult, or $10 per family. Meat, vegetarian, and gluten-free options will be provided. There will be kids' activities.

A plant sale and a bake sale will help raise funds for the Neighborhood Association’s operations, including its newsletter.

The party marks the 16th anniversary of our neighborhood – but Briarcrest history goes back at least to World War II. Please join us to learn more.
