Come hang out with your neighbors and meet members of the Overlook Neighborhood Association Board at our summer social on Tuesday at Atomic Pizza (1936 N Killingsworth St.), 6:30-8:30 p.m. Atomic will have food specials for residents.

If you have questions or ideas about what’s happening in the neighborhood, this is your chance to discuss them in an informal setting. It’s also an opportunity to get to know the people who live around you.

The summer social is held instead of the OKNA’s August general meeting.
