Get your gloves and sunscreen and come enjoy some time outdoors with your neighbors! We are going to walk the streets of Adair Park and clean up some trash. Meet in Adair Park II in the parking lot on Tift Ave. near Gillette Street at 8:30am for breakfast. We will be split up into groups and head out into the neighborhood to clean up from 9am to 12pm.
Please join us if you can, we need all the help we can get. This is a great way to meet neighbors and to beautify our community!
Adair Park’s monthly Meet-N-Greet happens this Sunday, September 25th, from 4-7pm. Brad Jent at 706 Elbert Street is opening his home again for another fun time with neighbors. Brad will provide some light snacks, but we ask that you BYOB and bring any other snacks you want to share. These are always a fun time, and if you haven’t seen Brad’s house, you need to. We hope to see you on Sunday!
The Adair Park Meet-N-Greets are monthly gatherings of neighbors of all ages (kids to seniors) at someone’s house or one of the parks designed for residents or potential residents to meet new neighbors and chat with those you already know. These events bring our neighborhood closer together and are a lot of fun as well.
Thanks to everyone that came to last month’s event at Adair Park I. We had a blast playing kickball with the kids, talking to neighbors and enjoying some fresh homemade popsicles. We have meet-n-greets locked up for the rest of the year, but if you are interested in hosting one in the future, please contact Jay Melton at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 404-790-2745.
Over the past few weeks, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners and the County Manager have initiated a new civic engagement program, called Fulton County ¢itizen $ense. Citizen Sense includes six interactive sessions where they actively engage with residents to hear first hand about our priorities for services and programs.
There are three remaining sessions in this series. As Fulton County residents, we have an important perspective on the operations and services of Fulton County Government. Come share your time and ideas about how we can continue to make our County the best it can be.

It’s that time of year again, NPU-V night at the Braves! This year’s game is Thursday Night, July 28th at 7pm at Turner Field against the red hot Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates might be this year’s most talked about team as they are playing above .500 ball for the first time since the 1990s, but the Braves are on a roll. Come cheer on Jason Heyward, Chipper Jones, Jair Jurrjens and Rookie of the Year candidates Freddie Freeman and Craig Kimbrel as they look to gain more ground on the Phillies in the NL East.
Tickets are free for NPU-V residents and are disbursed by each community. We should have Adair Park’s allotment of tickets in hand in a few days. Please email Jay Melton, Communications Coordinator for Adair Park Today at email@example.com or call 404-790-2745 to reserve your tickets. Space for the game is limited as the tickets from the Braves are split up between all the NPU-V communities, so tickets are first come first serve. They will be promoted here, on the Facebook pages and via the phone calling post to try and reach as many neighbors as we can. We hope to see you there!
Bring your neighbors out for some springtime porch sippin’ and chattin’! The meet-n-greets consistently bring out 30 or so neighbors. After the cleanup last month we had close to 50 people hanging out, and many were either new to the neighborhood or had not met many people in Adair Park.
This month’s meet-n-greet will take place at Shane Diekman’s house at 755 Brookline Street. Shane is providing light snacks, so please BYOB and bring something to munch on if you want. Please stop by, if only for a bit, and meet some of your Adair Park neighbors.
Join the Pittsburgh Revitalization Initiative, neighborhood youth and ABC members and volunteers for a bike ride highlighing the community assets and resources in Southwest Atlanta. This pleasant ride will meet at 1136 Metropolitan Parkway and progress from there. The ride will be a casual 4 miles and will be from 11am to 1pm.
Parents, please visit this page and get your permission slip. This event is co-sponsored by the Global Empowerment Center and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.
It’s that time again folks! The Adair Park Meet-N-Greet express rolls over to Tift Avenue for a progressive party. Tift Avenue runs parallel to Metropolitan just 2 streets back and runs alongside the big Adair Park II. The party starts at 7pm and move houses at some point in the evening. The hosts ask you to BYOB, and they will have some snacks and wine provided. The weather is supposed to be beautiful, so this should be a great night to have this event! Bring a neighbor or two with you, meet some new neighbors, chat with the ones you know and have a good time. We hope to see you there!
