A Moment of Prayer and Vigil for the People of Ukraine

Join us for a Moment of Prayer and Vigil to be held in Werry Park on Tuesday, March 1, at 6:30 pm.

This will be a gathering of song, sharing, prayer and meditation for the people of Ukraine and its neighbors from the people of College Terrace and surrounding neighborhoods. It’s a chance to come together in peace, for peace. Dress warm, bring a candle.

This event is being organized by the College Terrace Residents Association.

Love Your Neighborhood? Join the CTRA Board!

Do you love College Terrace? Want to learn more about the issues facing our neighborhood and help make it a more wonderful place to live? Join the College Terrace Residents’ Association board!

The CTRA’s mission is to enable residents to work together to maintain and enhance the quality of life in College Terrace. Our traffic barriers and traffic calming measures, our parking permit program, the continued operation of the College Terrace Library, and neighborhood picnics/social events are all thanks to the work of the CTRA and its members.

The CTRA is seeking volunteers for multiple roles in advance of its annual meeting, currently scheduled for the end of March. Most of these roles are high impact, but low-commitment–a couple hours a month at most, including our bimonthly meetings.

We know people are busy, but serving on the CTRA board is a fantastic way to learn about the issues affecting our neighborhood/city and, even better, do something about them! It’s also a great way to reconnect with neighbors as we emerge from the pandemic. (Who wants to plan an epic summer picnic?) It doesn’t matter if you’re a homeowner or renter, someone who’s lived in the neighborhood for thirty years or three months, we need you!

If you’re interested, please contact CTRA president James Cook at ctra-president@collegeterrace.org or reach out to any of the current CTRA board members.
