On September 7, 2013, Scott's Chapel UMC will be hosting a block party for the neighborhood children in front of the church -- the 1800 block of Hope Street in Hannibal, Missouri -- from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We will have food, games with prizes and face painting. Also, the fire department will have a truck and firefighters to talk about fire safety. The police department will provide their DARE officer and a police car. The police are also providing 50 basketballs to be distributed to the children this year. The 1800 block of Hope Street is located in an economically depressed area of Hannibal, and the neighborhood looks forward to our annual block party.
