What Our New Year House Party Was like

House on Macdonough Presents: A Prosperous 2010 New Year House Party

Welcome Home Holiday Party

I have been a Brooklyn resident pretty much most of my life.  I migrated to Brooklyn, NY from Jamaica when I was nine years old.  Went to P.S. 92 Elementary and I.S. 61 Junior High School.  For high school, I went to Graphic and Communication Arts.  Brooklyn was so wild, my parents refuse to send me to a local high school.  Little did they know that Graphics was just as bad (if not worst) but that’s another story.  I went away to school and lived in Washington, DC for about 9 years.  Although I became an adult in DC, I missed the people and energy of Brooklyn.  I moved back six years ago as an adult and discovered a whole new Brooklyn (gentrification).  I fell in love with Brooklyn all over again.  I knew then upon my return that I was meant to come home.  It’s was great to be back as an adult.  Because of  a real estate opportunity, I moved with my sister to Far Rockaway, Queens.  I hated every minute of living out there and couldn’t wait to move back home. 

The opportunity to move back came unexpectedly in October in which I quickly jumped on.  Now I am back and my goal is to let the world know.  With this new found energy I also want to promote Brooklyn and to allow the community to appreciate what they have.  This is my mission. Thy will be done. 

To let everyone know I was back home, I did a welcome home holiday party.  Instead of house-warming gifts, I asked everyone to bring canned goods and stocking stuffer items to give to charity.  It was an overwhelming success in every way.  Please take a look at how much fun the party was.  The last two pics are items under the Christmas tree that were collected for charity.

Enjoy. Until next post,
