I’m going to try to go back to posting daily, so we can have shorter posts. If you want to look back at earlier posts, just google: columbianeighborhood.org.

WHY THE CORONA VIRUS IS SO CONFUSING
This is one of the coolest articles I’ve read yet.

RISK ESTIMATOR FOR LEAVING THE HOUSE
I’m not certain of all this information yet. I’ve got the article out for review to my brother and my cousin Alex, the epidemiologist. But as near as I can tell, it’s pretty good. Only the author doesn’t cover exhaust valves in masks, which propel unfiltered exhaled breath like putting your thumb over the end of a garden hose. I wear my mask to protect you and you wear yours to protect me. Valve masks were never expected to be used to protect anyone but the wearer. If you wound up with one, tape over the valve from inside, and write “Blocked” with an arrow on the outside.

COLUMBIA NEIGHBORHOOD

MAY DAY NEIGHBORHOOD ART DISPLAY
Tomorrow: May Day, Friday, May 1, 2020, 9am-9pm,
Hello Columbia neighbors,
The Columbia Neighborhood Association Board would like you to know about an upcoming activity for all neighbors, in hopes of  bringing the community joy while maintaining the distancing guidelines put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Columbia Share Shack will provide a place for kids to hang up art to display. Also, art could be hung in the windows of homes or businesses, or be done with chalk on the sidewalks! On May 1st, let’s all take a walk through the neighborhood and enjoy some art to celebrate May Day, which has a history of many different celebrations in different cultures around the world, from welcoming spring to International Workers’ Day. Your art can reflect the theme that you choose. This is an opportunity to share our cultural diversity through our art on display at the Share Shack or from our windows or on our sidewalks!

The wires and clothespins are installed at the Share Shack at the corner of W. Connecticut St and Henry St, ready for children’s pictures!  Have fun!

If you have questions, please send them to columbianeighborhoodassociation@protonmail.com

RABBIT FIELDS IN COLUMBIA
I am once again hosting Rabbit Fields Farm to sell their fresh and organic produce this Saturday 9-1 a.m. The veggies have been bagged and boxed with utmost mindfulness and care. Prices range from $5.00-$30.00. I look forward to seeing my neighbors faces. ~ Heather Fitzstrawn, 2526 Kulshan Street
