2008 SORO Award Winners: Michele Wytko and SLO Rashad Sharif

The newly-renamed Susan Bursk Founder's Award is presented each year to an individual in recognition of his or her dedication and service to the South Robertson Neighborhoods community. The award is presented by SoRo Inc. and SORO NC at the SORO Festival.

This year's winner was community activist Michele Wytko for her tireless efforts to improve her La Cienega Heights neighborhood.

A special Service Award was also presented to Senior Lead Officer Rashad Sharif for his work in La Cienega Heights and in helping to establish the Robertson Activities League anti-gang program.

We're deeply grateful for the work Michele and SLO Sharif have done within SORO, and congratulate them on their awards.
 

Introducing SORO Walks at 7

Starting this summer, SORO NC invites you to join the neighborhood as we launch SORO Walks at 7.

This isn't a one-time event: every evening at 7pm, neighbors and residents are encouraged to get out and walk. Take advantage of the beautiful weather, meet new friends and spend time with old ones. SORO Walks at 7 is the perfect chance to get the exercise we all need, spend quality time with those you love and enjoy our beautiful neighborhood.

Together we can build a stronger, safer, healthier and more connected community. One walk at a time.
