Holiday Share Book & GatheringBy Cordell Hinton

The United Neighborhoods Neighborhood Council (UNNC) is composed of the most incredible people, places and properties. Its residents represent a rich diversity and an extraordinary wealth of traditions. The more we share and celebrate our experiences and traditions, the more we realize we are all connected.

As a way of celebrating this wealth of traditions, the West Adams Avenues neighborhood association is inviting you to share a recipe, family tradition, or a funny holiday story to be part of an e-book, West Adams Avenues presents a Holiday Share Book: Recipes and Memories from our Friends and Surrounding Neighborhoods. The e-book will be published in January and made available free to all.

All UNNC residents and stakeholders are invited to share a recipe or written account of how your family and friends have made the holidays special — past and present. Photos are welcome as well!

Those who send a submission to share in the book will receive a Starbucks gift card and a chance to be considered to win an Amazon gift card by group vote in January 2021! Prizes are courtesy the West Adams Avenues Association.

To receive the Starbucks card, submissions must be made by noon, December 24, 2020. Please send in an entry ASAP to The editors will be working on the Share Book through early January, and they will welcome additional submissions (but no coffee after December 24th!)

We look forward to sharing all that makes the UNNC neighborhoods an incredible place to live, work and play!
Happy Holidays!
