Neighborhood Exchange: How are you making a difference through your involvement with the Binder Street Block Club O&R?
E’Lois Moore: I am organizing the community to work collaboratively to make a difference in our community. The Binder Street Block Club O&R has several projects that we have started including the Farwell Community CB/Walking Patrol, the Farwell Community Garden, the Farwell Swaggers walking group, and various clean-up activities. We are committed to seeing these projects through.
Tell us about your group’s proudest accomplishment.
One of our proudest accomplishments was when we started our community garden and found how much this project touches many people in the area who participate in the garden and share the compassion that we have to make this city prosper and grow.
