On Monday, Dec. 7, Councilmember Charles Allen held an awards ceremony to announce the winners of the 2015 “Brickie” Awards. These awards, which are plaques attached to actual bricks, are given out to recognize people and organizations in Ward 6 who help make the community great. This year, our very own Southwest Neighborhood Assembly received the Community Organization award. SWNA has been serving Southwest for more than 50 years, and is much deserving of this recognition.
