[PHOTOS] West Villagers In Love With Abingdon Square Celebrate Spring!

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Our 7th Annual Tulip Celebration was a resounding success. More than 120 gathered at The Center on 13th Street to celebrate Spring. The room could not have looked more beautiful, as it buzzed with people happy to reconnect with old neighbors and meet new ones. We hope you will enjoy the pictures we have included. Photos here.

All who attended (or made donations in lieu of attending) affirmed their support of the Conservancy and its commitment to keep the park a welcoming jewel in all seasons.

A huge thank you to our wine sponsors and door prize donors. Please visit all these establishments and share your appreciation. (See map below)

We are grateful to DISH Catering for accommodating us as a non-profit and for their delicious food. A special thanks to Li-Lac Chocolates; their in-kind support has been with us since the event’s inception. Thanks to The Center and their team for making their home, ours; and to Luis Resto and Paul Nowinski, whose wonderful music filled the room with warmth and excitement.

Our stunning tulips in the Square peaked beautifully this spring; we hope you enjoyed them. The summer plantings begin soon. This is your donation in action! If you haven’t yet donated please consider doing so now. Donate here.

We are already planning our 13th Halloween Pumpkin Patch and 8th Holiday Tree Lighting. If you would like to give us a hand, we are always looking for volunteers.

In the meantime please enjoy a wonderful summer!

See you in the Square,

Sigrid Esser
