Most popular of 2010 - Labor Day fest, Marlton Square blight, Juneteenth celebration, Jazz events, Drum Circles is not a blog, because it takes more than one person to tell the story of our village. All are invited to share their news, their successes and their concerns with like-mind people - their neighbors.


We had some amazing contributions from citizen journalists, community activists and neighbors. Please thank them! The following are the most visited stories on Leimert Park Beat in 2010.
