The East Row Historic Foundation (ERHF) is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization with the mission to better our neighborhood by promoting historic preservation, civic engagement, and social events.
Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at the Sanctuary on the corner of 6th and Monroe.
You can get involved in the organization by joining one of our committees:
Chairperson: Emily Carabello
Making things beautiful and adding charm to the Historic East Row is the goal of the Beautification Committee. Whether cleaning up Newport with the Trash Bash Challenge or maintaining the garden urns, the committee hopes to make an impact on the one beautiful project at a time! If you have any ideas that would enhance the aesthetics of the East Row or want to join our fun, please contact Emily Carabello at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chairperson: John Morrow
The Historic Preservation committee promotes our historic housing stock and rich history. Meetings include happy hours with guest lecturers and advice from experts on how best to preserve the beautiful architecture of our neighborhood.
Chairperson: Elizabeth Robson
Philanthropy is vital to our organization. This committee is in charge of finding noble causes for us to contribute to and champion.
Welcoming and Social Committees
Chairperson: Elaine Pearl
The Welcoming and Social Committees were created to foster a cohesive community within the East Row Historic District (ERHD). The Committees both promote comradery and attempt to build unity among the ERHD through organizing fun and interesting events for the entire community, allowing neighbors to meet and socialize with each other, no matter how long they have been a neighbor. The Welcoming Committee works to cultivate a friendly neighborhood atmosphere by hosting New Neighbor Parties and passing out welcome bags to new neighbors. If you have any ideas or would like to join either committee, please see an ERHF Board member.
Chairperson: Jen Shorten
A crown jewel of our community is our dog park next to Providence Park. The committee holds fund raisers and events to benefit our four-legged friends and their playground.
