Last night we hosted the King William Social here at Villa Finale. We had over 100 neighbors and friends attend the social, a quarterly event hosted by the King William Association. I was reminded once again of what a singular neighborhood this is – of course by the conviviality of the event! – but also because of the concern expressed by everyone for the welfare of a few residents who are struggling due to illness or family emergency. The Association was also able to present a check to a King William resident who recently lost her home to fire.
We also kicked off Restoring Voices, our oral history program. Sylvia was able to interview a number of residents, and got lots of great stories about Walter Mathis, Villa Finale, and King William. If you have stories to share, let us know!
Here are some pictures from last night:
