Our First Annual Community Tree Lighting was Saturday, December 12, complete with bonfire, caroling, and holiday treats. The beautiful tree was a generous contribution provided by Bartels Construction Solutions. Thanks also to the East Mecklenburg Chamber Choir who performed and led caroling, and The Coffee Priest for providing hot chocolate and warm drinks. The tree lights, hay bales, chalk board wish list, and other supplies — and many hours of effort — were donated by a team of individuals who came together in the spirit of the season for their community.
On November 5, 2015, MoRA came together with M Station and Meridian Place and hosted a community block party with a keg, bluegrass, and great food. M Station opened its doors so we could seetheir chic model apartments; Mexican cuisine food truck Tin Kitchen and cupcake specialty Southern Cake Queen provided great food, and the Flat Tire Trio made the evening fun and fantastic. For a few hours, this casual welcoming event was the place for neighbors – singles, families, kids and dogs – to hang out and get to know one another. Check out the pictures and video.
