Mount Pleasant Spring Shop Hop is Saturday

Spring has sprung! If you haven't spent a Saturday in the neighborhood yet this spring, this weekend is your chance. You can usually find me at the farmers' market on Saturday AM, but this week, you'll find me all up and down Mt Pleasant Street NW supporting the businesses taking part in the Spring Shop Hop

The Mount Pleasant Business Association and a dozen local businesses are teaming up to offer specials and show off some of our civic treasures like the newly renovated Mount Pleasant Branch Library and the great kids attending Bancroft Elementary.
