Voting awareness

I wanted to create a group to talk about things that are happening that affect us politically.  I think we all need to be smart and active voters, and i hope that starting this group will help to facilitate that for the south west.  This group is about sharing opinions and ideas.  Its good to share feelings about the elected officials who represent us, but this really isn't the place to campaign for someone or flat out lambast the people you dislike.The more active and aware we are in regards…See More

Coming Home!

Hi South Westerners, and Location 19er's! For those of you that remember us, Anthony and I are returning! After four years away from Rochester,  we have decided to come "home". I have accepted a wonderful job in Fairport, and we will be back in the city by the end of July. Currently I am staying with a friend in the Beechwood neighborhood, and Anthony is still in Binghamton until we move. Anthony is doing better, but stills manages with extreme pain throughout the day from his condition. He was…See More

A message from Shawn

Hey Location19er's! I just wanted to give you all an update as to what and where Anthony and I are up to. Many of you may remember that Anthony was not feeling well as we were planning our move out to Seattle in June. Well about 2 weeks before we were to drive across country he took a turn for the worse. We ended up moving to Binghamton NY where we have been staying with family for the last month and a half.

Anthony is doing better, due to medication, but is still in pain, and can not… Continue

A Message from Shawn about Location19

Posted on April 17, 2010 at 12:45pm 9 Comments

Dear Location19 members,

I have been worrying about how to tell you all this for sometime, and as many of you have noticed, Anthony and I

have listed our house for sale. I will be graduating at the end of May,

and for employment and educational reasons, we have decided that we

will be relocating to Seattle, WA this summer.

This was a hard decision to make, and we have been debating the idea since I started

school in 2006. But as you may know, the economy… Continue

*Just a note -- Patricia Hagerman has donated a laptop for the Sullivans to use at the hospital, so we can strike that from the list. Thanks, Patricia!*

Ann Marshall, Heather Adams, Mary Ann Brody and Lisa Norwood have worked out a plan for food delivery for the Sullivan family -- see below....

Dear friends, neighbors, and colleagues,

For those of you who are preparing meals for the Sullivans, we wanted to offer one way to do this. If you'd like, we are encouraging… Continue

Thoughts and Prayers for Bill Sullivan

Posted on December 15, 2009 at 1:38pm 1 Comment

From the 19th Ward Community Association:

"Hello friends,

As many of you already know, Bill Sullivan (son of Barb & Bill, husband to Juliet and father to daughters Molly & Josie) suffered a massive hemorrhage in his brain early yesterday morning. He has survived surgery to relieve the pressure and this morning has shown a couple of small but encouraging signs of responsiveness. His condition is still quite grave, however, and the family would like their friends and… Continue

Hey. :) Yeah, Penhurst had a block club with lots of active members for several years. When I first moved in (back in '98) it was going through an up-swing, reaching it's height in 2001. From 2002 through 2004 it decreased from about 25 active members down to about 5. Seems to wax and wane based on how upset people are about crime/drugs on or near Penhurst. The 99/2000 swing was a direct result of crack sales on Thurston, and the resulting robberies, vandalism, and garbage flowing down our street from there. After the '02 crime initiative that focused on cleaning up Thurston, the group slowly fell apart, as people became less involved.

I would love to catch you up on the history of the block club. I have lots of documentation, pictures, etc. :)

Hi Shawn, Thanks for your message. As you surely know, the 19th Ward has a rich history of interaction with the UR, and I am working to build upon that through events such as the Brooks Landing Barbecue, and through established initiatives such as Wilson Day and the Rochester Urban Fellowship. I'm open to new ideas, too. Glad to make your acquaintance!

Hi, Shawn, I tried to enter our group and had difficulty. Perhaps you can assist me. We meet once a month the fourth Tuesday at 5:30 pm at 350 Arnett Blvd. Our next meeting is next week. I will ask my husband to assist me-he is more savy with this stuff. Susan

Thank you for setting this up. What a great way to start revitalizing the Ward and providing a place to tie together all the various people and groups and keep us connected.

Did a lot of improvements to the interior of my home this year, plan on working on the outside next year. The poor yard is in need of some TLC
