This April's Allandale Neighbor should arrive in your mailboxes over the next few days. Spring has certainly sprung, and this edition begins with Tom Linehan discovering the versatility of screened porches and talking with several neighbors about the delight porches bring to their Allandale homes. The perennial Garage Sale is scheduled for 4 May, and Laura Slaughter explains a new feature for this year – a centralized drop off location, if you don't have enough for a sale of your own. Just donate the items to ANA at the drop off location, and support ANA while you spruce up for Spring! Any unsold items will be donated at the end of the day.
