Neighbor Spotlight – Liioness & Alex

  May is for Mothers. This month we’re spotlighting a pair of mothers who are themselves a mother and daughter, Liioness Gwendolyn Barnett and Alexandria Barnett. Both are familiar and appreciated figures in the neighborhood, especially at the Riverwest Co-op, where Alex works in the café and Liioness volunteers in the store.

CENTER ST NEWS – At long last, the Riverwest Artists Association is vacating its Post Office Box. RAA recently became the proud new owner of the former Jazz Gallery at 926 E. Center St., another building
previously owned by Bob Klavetter. Watch for a grand opening on Sat, July 26. The fresh energy being generated by all the new property owners on the street is spurring talk of getting a Center St. business association going again.
