ASUM Neighborhood Ambassadors Host University Neighborhood Block Party

May 01, 2014

MISSOULA – The Associated Students of the University of Montana Neighborhood Ambassadors will host its second annual University Neighborhood Block Party from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, May 4. The party is free and open to the public and will be held on the 400 block of University Avenue, just one block from the western edge of campus.

The event will feature live music and fun activities for both kids and adults. Ice cream will be available for purchase from The Big Dipper ice cream truck, ASUM Transportation Bike Ambassadors will offer free bike tune-ups and the UM FLAT will host a seed-planting station.

Other campus and community organizations, including the Office of Neighborhoods and the Kyi-Yo Native American Student Association, will host tables with information and activities for attendees.

The event is part of the Neighborhood Ambassador Program’s mission to foster positive relations between UM and its neighborhood.

“We are excited to bring together the UM student renters and permanent residents that live side by side on the streets surrounding our campus,” said Katherine Brady, director of the ASUM Off-Campus Renter Center. “This event is a great excuse to come together and celebrate our vibrant community.”
