What a great way to remember a loved one that was so instrumental to Tobin Hill. Last Friday, October 12, during the Second Friday Social Luis Lopez unveiled two pieces of art to remember Mrs. Alizondo who owned several properties in Tobin Hill. Her son, Luis Alizondo, hired Tobin Hill artist Luis Lopez to develop two art pieces that are now part of the landscape on Dewey. Following the unveiling refreshments and fellowship were enjoyed by many at CASA ROSA, the Gallery of Luis Lopez. Be sure to check out the photos on the THCA Facebook page.
The Tobin Hill Community Association Board instituted the Second Friday Social several months ago and it has become a great way to meet and get to know your neighbors. We look forward to future Second Fridays and are always looking for neighbors and/or businesses to host. I look forward to seeing each of you in the near term at one of the many Neighborhood engagements!
