It’s Perry Christmas tree time

The Perry Street Cafe is putting on the annual Christmas tree lighting on Tuesday beginning at 5:30 p.m. Cafe owner Geoff Whtie picks up what he calls “a Charlie Brown tree” every year and invites neighbors to come and decorate it. Just bring an ornament and your’re in. The Perry Street Cafe will serve hot beverages while the decorating is going on. At 6:30 Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive at the Perry Street Cafe. Also, the Grant Elementary School Holiday Convert begins at 6:30 p.m. and is expected to last for about an hour. Parents and students are welcome at The Perry Street Cafe after the concert is over - Santa Claus will still be there, waiting for you. Then, at 7:45 p.m., a group of neighbors will go caroling in the South Perry District. The South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association is also supporting this event.
Do bring a toy for Toys For Tots - collection bins are located at the Perry Street Cafe - or a pair of boots or warm socks for the South Perry Sock Drive to benefit students at Grant Elementary School. 

Christmas tree lighting a week from today

Come one and come all on Tuesday Dec. 14 and gather at 6:30 p.m. outside the Perry Street Cafe. Sing a few carols, hang out with your neighbors and come inside the cafe for hot cider, chocolate and coffee. Bring a donation for the Perry Sock drive (socks, hats, scarves and mittens for the students at Grant) or a toy for Toys For Tots.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
