Blood Drive (and More) at Sunday’s Open Streets Montague

This Sunday’s (June 9) Open Streets Montague will feature a blood drive to benefit the New York Blood Center, sponsored by the Montague Street BID, St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, and the Brooklyn Heights Association. Donations will be taken from 11:00 AM until 5:00 PM in front of St. Ann’s Church at 157 Montague. If you would like to donate, you may make an appointment here.

Of course, as at every Open Streets Montague, there will be many opportunities to enjoy, learn, and listen. Brooklyn Poets will offer 20% off books and swag at their location, 144 Montague, between Clinton and Henry, between noon and 5:00. From noon until 1:00 at 151 Montague, also between Clinton and Henry, Champions Martial Arts will present a demonstration. Want to learn more about art? The Art Dude (photo, Montague BID) will be on hand, strolling along Montague, to answer your questions and give you free postcards of great art. It’s summer; concerned about your skin? Sun Mi James, 120 Montague (between Henry and Hicks) will be giving free samples of sunscreen and cleansers, as well as free add-ons to services when you book an appointment during Open Streets. Ready for some music? Local resident Cheryl Tugade will give a guitar concert from noon until 1:00. The teenage sensations JAW will perform from 3:00 to 5:00 at the tent between Henry and Hicks. There’s more information here.

Montague Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Clinton and Henry streets and between Henry and Hicks streets from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM Sunday. Parked cars on those blocks will have to be moved before 10:00 AM.
