WOW! What a great turn out for our 3rd annual ☀️Block Party☀️!

It was great to see so many Twain families out enjoying a good time together.

Putting together such a large event is a big job, so sending out a HUGE thank you to team lead, Bridget Songstad, and head organizer, Nicki Schulman. You ROCK!

And to the rest of our Block Party Committee that stepped up to ensure the Block Party happened: Patricia Heber, Molly Honig, Reshma Kapadia, Janani Kartik, Brittany Kukal, McGinnes Ladd, Sarah Menenberg, Audrey Adler, April Roberts, Michelle Soltani, and Naling Zhang.
