ON THE ROAD IN SOUTH PORTLAND

Heavy rains and gusting winds didn't dampen the turn-out for the first-ever mixer sponsored by both the Knightville Mill Creek Neighborhood Association and the Waterfront Market Association. More than 150 residents and business owners braved the crazy weather and packed the Snow Squall tonight in an effort to meet more people in the neighborhood.

I snapped this photo of some of the folks who organized this successful party. They include Bob O'Brien, president of the Waterfront Market Association, Alan Johnson, local resident, MaryAnn Molloy, of Healthy Body Fit Mind, Leah Lippmann, chair of the neighborhood association, (back row) Michael Vaillancourt, of Ainsworth, Thelin & Raftice, Sarah Kirn, vice chair of the neighborhood association, and Jack Brady, who lives and works in the neighborhood.

Local businesses donated tons of cool raffle prizes -  gift certificates, duffel bags, rugs and pillows. And nearby eateries offered up trays and trays of free food.

I'll tell you who was there and what they had to say about the neighborhood in this weekend's Scene & Heard section of the Maine Sunday Telegram.
