Brookland Parade

Woodridge Warriors And Cheerleaders Looking Good And Ready To Go!

The “heart” of Brookland – the intersection of 12th and Monroe Streets, NE – was abuzz with activities this Saturday morning. First off, the  Woodridge Warriors football team kicked off their homecoming parade in front of St. Anthony of Padua  church. Founded in 1963, The Woodridge Warriors Youth Organization has a long history and tradition in the community. After cheering the football players and cheerleaders on, attention was turned to finding a great bargain just steps away at the St. Anthony thrift sale. There were lots of great finds from snacks like gluten-free popcorn, cakes, and candied apples to clothing and home decor. I picked up a super-nice pair of sandals for $10 that were hand-made in Senegal. Seeing traditions handed down from one generation to the next, families of all types building memories together and community pride is what Brookland is about, and it makes me proud to call it home.
