Rego Park Green Alliance Wins Love Your NYC Block Contest

Last week the Rego Park Green Alliance learned they were the winners of the Dress Up Your NYC Block Contest. "All of our hard work paid off," said Shortt. Mrs. Shortt is referring to a 2500 foot mural they painted on a wall owned by the LIRR. In the future the group will be using part of the money for a Jazz Concert they are working on, green roof education, and if they can manage it a green wall under the LIRR underpass.

Mailbox Setup For Rego Park Green Alliance Jazz Concert

Co-Founder Richard West and his two kids placed a mailbox filled with Rego Park jazz concert flyers on the corner fence of the Lutheran Church. The goal, let people know about the jazz concert. It's RPGA's goal to get as many people together as possible to celebrate Rego Park and what makes it special.

P.S. 139 Space Mural

The mural at P.S. 139 was painted yesterday, August 12. It looks fabulous. Everyone came out in full force, including the filming crew. Rego Park Green Alliance members should be very happy with how the mural looks. Many stayed and painted while the rain came pouring down.Today many kids were back in the park playing handball or basketball on the back courts. It was great to see the kids playing with the lovely bright mural in the background.

Rego Park has one dedicated group of volunteers, that's for sure!

Space Mural Update

Some members of RPGA went over to look at the space garden mural as it was being primed by Shana and friends. It looks great- what a rich color. The artists decided to do the priming themselves so they could sketch, we have aggressive time constraints. Tomorrow fellow RPGA members will help prime and paint several additional sections of the wall.

Rego Park Green Alliance Members At The New Haven Library

Did you know RPGA wrote a book called A New York City Public School Goes Green? Several members who also illustrated the book were invited to give five copies to the New Haven Library. The book will be available in the main library and in several branches around New Haven. This is a picture of several members and the head of childrens' services at the main branch in New Haven.

Space Garden At P.S. 139

NYC Service selected the Rego Park Green Alliance to be a spokes group for volunteering in their community. What does this mean fo Rego Park? It means we are getting another mural compliments of NYC.

Eve Biddle and Shana Siegel are designing our mural and I must say I think it looks fantastic. Of course those who know me know I teach robotics and hydroponics so any mural that fuses the two has my undying support.
